About the Film
Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River weaves elements of fantasy, noir and suspense into a modern day fairytale. Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy (Christina Hendricks) a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son Bones (Iain De Caestecker) discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery if their family is to survive. Also starring Saoirse Ronan, Matt Smith, Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn.
All round fantastic acting in this magical, thought-provoking film that any first time director should be proud of.
An empty shell
I really wanted to love this movie but it's an empty shell of gorgeous visuals and music but with absolutely no atmosphere or reason to care about any of the characters. You're better off watching the trailer and buying the soundtrack.
A trip through depression & ugliness
You want to know the opposite of "life affirming"? Watch this sad and sordid film.
Very dark and very sick themes prompted by the seedier aspects of a meretricious, ugly society, and given a token moral redemption at the end in a failed attempt to justify it all.
