Refn's surreal cinematic spell is amazing

"Time to meet the devil."

There is an unreasonable amount of expectation surrounding 2013's Only God Forgives, as it's the second collaboration of director Nicolas Winding Refn and star Ryan Gosling after 2011's Drive. Fans of Drive expecting something similar will be disappointed - you see, Drive was in fact more of a gun-for-hire project for Refn, who was called upon to put his di... read more

A Unique Experience But Not An Enjoyable One

The main reason I wanted to check out this film was because I wanted to see some of Nicolas Winding Refn's work to try to prepare myself to eventual see Drive. However, it wasn't just that as this is one of those big "love it or hate it" films that I was also interested in checking out what the fuss was all about. I have to say it was certainly a unique experience but unfortunately not an enjoyabl... read more

Director Nicolas Winding Refn is back with Ryan Gosling in another thriller Only God Forgives. The film seems to have both critics and audiences hating it. One thing is for sure though Nicolas Winding Refn movies have a acquired taste and if you don't like it you most likely wont end up liking this movie. Ryan Gosling does it again with a great performance the guy can play a total silent badass... read more

Description: Bangkok. Ten years ago Julian killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty. When Julian’s brother murders a prostitute the police call on retired cop Chang – the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer, then ‘restores order’ by chopping off the man’s right hand. Julian’s mother Jenna – the head of a powerful criminal organization – arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body. She dispatches Julian to find his killers and ‘raise hell’. Incr ... (more)

My Top 10 Least Favourite Movies of 2013 (11 movies items)

"I've heard this movie was booed at Cannes, and I don't blame them! Forget the disgracefully slow pace and the uncomfortable level of red in the colour scheme; the movie's biggest sin is how it handles its depravity. The characters are completely devoid of personality, so all you're left with is the actual horrible acts they commit. Simply presenting violence without any context is just downright unpleasant and mean-spirited. I particularly lost it when the mother tries to defend her son's raping"

An average movie

“2 years after the massive cult-classic ‘Drive’, Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling came back with this new project and, of course, the expectations were pretty high. Eventually, this new movie was really poorly received but I still wanted to check it out. To be honest, I was at first really impressed by the damned thing. Indeed, I thought it was visually really amazing, even more than ‘Drive’. Unfortunately, pretty soon, it turned out that the story was actually really tedious. Apparently, it seemed that they went for some rather mystical vibe but it seriously backfired. Seriously, it was sometimes even rather pathetic (for example, it was rather ridiculous to see each time the policeman popping up his little sword out of nowhere). Concerning Ryan Golsing, he is a fine actor but” read more
