Gosling makes an altogether inauspicious debut with this risible slab of Detroit gothic.

Owes a sizable debt to David Lynch and to Nicolas Winding Refn, but it reveals Mr. Gosling as a filmmaker with a poetic sensibility of his own.

Comes across as the work of a poseur, but it's not that far away from being the striking, left-field cult vision Gosling clearly hoped it would be.

A gruesome fairy tale of evil banks and sunken dreams, Lost River is a fantastically awful misfire from actor turned writer/director Ryan Gosling.

A mess, but it's the best mess possible, an evocative grab-bag of images and moods with a heartfelt sincerity and conflicting impulses of romantic melancholy and hardscrabble hopefulness.

A visual and aural sensory bath that shows some real flair but feels madly derivative at every moment.

It's the work of a surprisingly confident and experimental young filmmaker, even if he's not yet confident enough to move beyond his influences.
