Refn's surreal cinematic spell is amazing

"Time to meet the devil." An unreasonable amount of expectation surrounded 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 distinct audio-visual st... 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

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 ‘Dr... 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)

"I saw this in the theater when it came out and remember having mixed feelings about it, as the follow up to the electrifying Drive I felt this was on the same level visually and with the score/music but just felt very empty. That being said this movie has grown on me over the years and I've never seen it in the wild in any format so I had to get it. "

Movies I watched in April 2019 (21 movies items)

" Date: 4/1/2019 Viewed: Netflix First Viewing Note: People seem to hate this movie, but I really enjoy it. The movie is flawed, but I thought it was a interesting take on the revenge film genre. I thought the story was interesting and the pacing was perfect. The movie didn't seem to over stay its welcome or go by too fast. I also love the color scheme and the gritty atmosphere. This movie may not be for everyone, but I do think it is worth checking out."

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"
