"The wolves, if they're not already at your door, they're gonna be there very fucking soon." If you though the previous US trailer and international trailer for Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River were weird, then this new extended trailer for the Cannes selected film is really going to creep you out. For some reason, it's labeled as a featurette, but this is clearly an extended red band trailer with salty language, unnerving peeling of Christina Hendricks' face, Ben Mendelsohn dancing and some gorgeous cinematography. It certainly looks beautiful, but feels like it's trying to be weird for the sake of being weird.
Here's the new red band trailer for Ryan Gosling's Lost River from Warner Bros. Pictures:
You can still watch the first US trailer for Lost River right here.
Lost River (formerly known as How to Catch a Monster) is written and directed by Ryan Gosling (star of Drive, The Ides of March, Crazy Stupid Love), making his feature directorial debut. 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 Bones (Iain De Caestecker), her eighteen-year-old son, 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. Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn also star in the film that will premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, and Warner Bros. Pictures will release it on VOD & limited theaters April 10th.
Turns out he's the next David Lynch

Hmm, looks very Winding Refn-like.

I'm sure he's been influenced by him

Looks like he watched Twin Peaks and Only God Forgives on repeat for a while and decided to make a movie. We shall see how it is!

Lynch and Kubrick mixed in a blender

I don't know what to think of it. Atmosphere is all right, but, I see no point in making films like this. But then again, this is one of those films you really have to watch to tell and know was it worth the effort ...

I watched it, and I can tell you it's well worth the effort. The cinematography is stunning and the soundtrack is spine-tingling. Can't wait to see it again.

Ok, thanx. Will accept what you've said. I just hope that story is ok, too ...
