Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling served up his hugely-anticipated directorial debut "Lost River" in Cannes Tuesday, a psychedelic fantasy with strong David Lynch echoes that had some critics screaming in pain and others singing his praise.Journalists jostled with movie-buffs to get into the festival hall's plush movie theatre for what was one of the most eagerly awaited events of the Cannes Film Festival, and many ended up being turned away. The film also stars British actor Matt Smith of "Doctor Who" fame as Bully, a rabid man-about-town who spreads terror in Lost River and likes to cut the lips off those who displease him.Gosling said he had taken his inspiration from the city when he went there to shoot George Clooney's political drama "The Ides of March".Gosling's film is competing in the Un Certain Regard section of the film festival, which seeks to recognise new talent and encourage innovative, daring work.
