Only God Forgives (2013) Director: Nicolas Winding Refn


The look, the feel of this teaser indicates a continuation of the Drive aesthetic;  hyper stylized imagery, brooding monosyllabic protagonist,  melancholy electronic sounds, am omnipresent sense of threat and impending violence. We are clearly in a Refn joint, the Danish film-makers style becoming more refined with each project and with Gosling has found a simpatico collaborator inventing a 21st Century re-invention of the archetypal male loner in crime, pulp fiction, westerns and film noir only with sharper threads, latent psychoses and sensitive yearnings.
