Lost River Review

I’m curious how strong boos actually are at the Cannes Film Festival: how long they last, and what small percentage of the audience actually chooses to deliberately ruin a film before it’s ever released. This low-level sound can bury a film because the press loves to report whenever boos happen at the world’s most prestigious film festival. It instantly shapes the film’s cinephile perception. And many self-described cinephiles instantly dismiss it based on word of mouth.

Ryan Gosling last starred in a film—Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives—that was reported to have received a not-so-cordial “smattering of boos” at Cannes. His next film, Lost River, which is his directorial debut, also heard boos at the croisette. Since Gosling is a movie star, and his first film he wrote and directed got booed from areas of the audience, that’s a press cloud that’s hung over his film for almost a year. It is finally being released now.

Kill Me Three Times Review

Straight up, the idea of Simon Pegg as a ruthless mercenary who gets caught in the middle of an intricate revenge/murder plot sounds pretty rad. Unfortunately, in execution, director Kriv Stenders’ Kill Me Three Times comes off as a wannabe Pulp Fiction, albeit with some decent twists and turns. While the movie certainly has its moments — thanks in part to Pegg’s crass and murderous lead — it ultimately falls short of the cult comedy-thrillers it’s trying to ape.

Set in the fictional Australian surf town of Eagles Nest, the story follows Charlie Wolfe (Pegg), a quicksilver assassin who’s hired to kill the wife (Alice Braga) of a wealthy bar owner (Callan Mulvey). However, Wolfe soon discovers he’s not the only one after his mark, and ends up embroiled in all manner of mayhem, murder and betrayal. In typical Quentin Tarantino fashion, we see the events unfold from numerous perspectives, each one shedding more light on the situation.
