Get a good look at Ryan Gosling's directorial debut in this clip from Lost River (formerly called How To Catch A Monster). This movie is batty โ€” but maybe in a good way? We can't tell yet, take a look.

Time just wrote a great write up about the film that has the most substantial plot breakdown yet:

In the fictional urban wasteland of Lost River โ€” actually today's Detroit, where the movie was shot โ€” single mom Billy (Mad Men's Christina Hendricks) is a part-time waitress raising her two sons, teenage Bones (Iain De Caestecker, the Scottish actor on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and a toddler. Bones likes the girl next door, Rat (Saoirse Ronan), so-called because her other closest friend is a large, amiable rat named Nick. This part of Lost River is ruled by a bully named Bully (ex-Dr. Who Matt Smith); he patrols the neighborhood in a convertible with an upholstered chair mounted on the back seat and shouts through a bullhorn, "Welcome to Bully Town."


The film just premiered at Cannes, and we'll keep our eyes peeled for more reviews.
