If The Interview taught us anything, it’s that there is plenty of success to be had releasing your film directly into peoples’ homes. So let’s not cry too hard for The Gos, whose directorial debut will be distributed by Warner Bros. studio. But only on home video. That probably means a Video On Demand release as well as the DVD.
This shouldn’t be a surprise given the reaction the film, Lost River, got at the Cannes Film Festival last year. Vanity Fair critic Richard Lawson wrote: “Nothing feels connected to anything else in any important way, as if Gosling just came up with a bunch of visual ideas, set pieces flickering in his mind, and then wrote the script around them.” OUCH.
Lost River stars Christina Hendricks, (Ryan Gosling‘s girlfriend) Eva Mendes, Matt Smith, Saoirse Ronan, and Iain de Caestecker. It was filmed in Detroit to stand in for a post-apocalyptic wasteland, the film has been described as a “violent fairy tale”—though, apparently, not the kind like Into the Woods.
If you’re just waiting for to see The Gos on the big screen again, you’re going to have to be REALLY patient. He has one project awaiting release, an untitled Terrence Malick movie that doesn’t even have a trailer yet. Yikes. Locutores profesionales de doblaje. Good luck waiting.
