See a Trailer for the Film Ryan Gosling Directed Handsomely But Also Maybe Poorly

Reviews from Cannes were merciless in their savaging of Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, Lost River, but as our own Kyle Buchanan put it, “Whatever you may think of the film, it will surely make for a very striking trailer.” And now it has! The film stars Christina Hendricks and Iain De Caestecker as a mother and son living in a vaguely postapocalyptic town, but judging from the trailer, its real stars are mood lighting, follow shots, and things being on fire.
