Reviews: Lost River (2015)

lost_riverReviews for this film from our members:

  • Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
    • Excerpt: Lascia senza parole l’audacia narrativa di Gosling. Non tutto funziona alla perfezione, ma il suo film e’ coraggioso, sfrontato, affettuoso con i suoi personaggi. Christina Hendricks richiama la Rossellini di Cuore Selvaggio. I giovani sono indovinatissimi, Ben Mendelsohn conferma tutte le sue qualita’ istrioniche. E’ gia’ culto.
  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
  • Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
    • Excerpt: Lost River’ drew me in to its nihilistic, disturbing, eccentric world, and while it might not be a model of narrative efficiency, it’s got more striking moments and memorable images than a season of studio product. And your mileage may vary, but this moviegoer would much rather give himself over to something this wild and bizarre that maybe doesn’t quite fire than, say, a branded, over-produced car chase movie with a 7 in the title.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Ryan Gosling certainly set out to make an art film that is an admirably strange, even mesmerizing, experience. As esoteric filmmaking to the nth degree, “Lost River” is also almost impossible to embrace and mostly pointless.
  • Matt Looker @ The Shiznit
    • Excerpt: What we have here is a muddied mess of erratic ramblings, a movie that contains a lot of individual surreal elements and has nothing to hold it all together apart from Gosling’s own blind faith that weird = clever.
  • Ross Miller @ Thoughts On Film
    • Excerpt: Gosling shows a certain kind of promise and I’m sure he’ll make a great movie one day as a director. This just isn’t it.
