Ryan Gosling credits his experience of working with Nicolas Winding Refn and Derek Cianfrance for influencing 'Lost River'
"In many ways, this movie is a gift from the directors I could work with in the last years. As an actor I've passed though deeply real movies with Derek Cianfrance to the imagination of Nicolas Winding Refn. I think I have oscillated between these two extremes because my own sensibility as a director lies somewhere between the two," he says in the press notes for the film (via Ryan Gosling Addicted)."You can read more of Ryan's official statement at RyanGoslingAddicted
