CANNES WATCH: Bizarre, Intriguing First Clip from Ryan Gosling’s Directorial Debut ‘Lost River’

CANNES WATCH: Bizarre, Intriguing First Clip from Ryan Gosling's Directorial Debut 'Lost River'

A first teaser clip has arrived from Ryan Gosling’s Cannes entry “Lost River.” It’s… very strange. Gosling is definitely going experimental with his first outing in the director’s seat. We’ll get a clearer idea of what the film is about once it bows in the Un Certain Regard section, but for the moment, take a gander, below.

It certainly boasts an impressive cast: Christina Hendricks, Ben Mendelsohn, Eva Mendes, Saoirse Ronan, Matt Smith and Iain De Castaeker. We know that it focuses on a single mother (Hendricks), who happens upon a dark underworld, while her son discovers a utopia submerged underwater. Hard to tell how those elements link into this clip — which includes a man shouting repeatedly “Look at my muscles!”, along with images of a burning house and various disaffected youth staring at each other grimly — but our curiosity is piqued.

Check out some first-look images from the film here.
