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.

"Only God Forgives isn't great, but it is sometimes interesting as well as fucked up. One of the highlights is the torture scene, which is both disturbing and compelling at the same time."

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

"Least-Favorite Film of 2014 I was not actively trying to check awful films on Netflix, so for the films in these categories. I don't particularly hate these films, even the "winner" of this category isn't a movie I think that is particular horrible. These are just the films that are either bad quality-wise or I feel is an uninteresting product. Dishonorable Mentions: West Side Story"

It's a perfectly fine thing to have hidden clues, symbols and metaphors that communicate your ideas subliminally to the audience and that will take many viewings for a skilled movie analyst to crack a
