Ryan Gosling's directorial debut has arrived at the Cannes Film Festival -- a stylish, theatrical fable that critics quickly slammed.
Immediate reaction from critics was largely negative. Variety's Scott Foundas called it a "first-rate folie de grandeur." The Telegraph's Robbie Collin dubbed it "dumb-foundingly poor."
Warner Bros. has not yet scheduled a release date for "Lost River," which was previously titled "How to Catch a Monster." Its cast includes Christina Hendricks, Saorsie Ronan, former "Doctor Who" star Matt Smith and Gosling's girlfriend, Eva Mendes.
