What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Lost River is actor Ryan Gosling's directorial debut; he also wrote the film but doesn't star in it. His popularity might draw younger viewers to the film, but it's too dark and violent to be appropriate for anyone but the oldest and most mature teens. There are some startlingly violent sequences -- such as a sadistic villain who tortures people, cuts off their lips, kills a character's pet, and sends a henchman to set a house (with people in it) on fire, or a woman who stabs a man in self defense. Plus, women perform in a bloody burlesque show that makes it seem like they're being killed and tortured (though it's all makeup and fake blood), and there's strong language is in nearly every scene (mostly "f--k," "motherf---er," and "s--t"), as well as some smoking and drinking.
