Usually, when I think of a featurette, I think of something that illuminates some behind the scenes material about the film. For Warner Bros., I guess it means just a little bit longer of a trailer. Such is the case with this latest featurette for Ryan Gosling‘s directorial debut Lost River, which you can watch below.
I saw the film at SXSW and didn’t care for it all that much. It’s not a terrible movie but feels like wasted potential. It is visually stylish, sure, and this featurette definitely demonstrates that. But once you look beyond that, there is not much going on here that’s particularly interesting.
People will still be curious to see how Gosling handles himself behind the camera, because people have a weird obsession with him. And that’s fine. Do what you please. But the movie has much more to offer you than the featurette you can watch below.
