The critics agree: Lost River demands to be found!
TIME‘s Richard Corliss raves, “Give some credit to Gosling.”
Keith Uhlich of Time Out New York gushes, “You … have to give it props.”
Matt Looker of TheShiznit.co.uk proclaims, “It’s got loads of symbolism about, like, women and sex and monsters and theatre and street lighting.”
GamesRadar’s Matt Glasby writes, “Ryan Gosling is a man of many talents: a fine actor (Half Nelson) who makes creditably leftfield choices (Lars And The Real Girl) and … a wordsmith.” The critic followed up with us on Twitter to add that Lost River is the “best RG film I’ve seen.” High praise.
The List’s Allan Hunter explains, “Clint Eastwood, Richard Attenborough and Ida Lupino are just some of the names one could cite as proof that actors often make the best directors. On the evidence of his lurid gothic fairytale Lost River, Ryan Gosling is … about to join that list … soon.”
