probably my most hyped movie release along with next year's alien: covenant. Refn is fantastic. Drive and Only God Forgives are both masterpieces in my book.
Looks gorgeous, hope it's actually good.
Cannes Review: 'The Neon Demon' is a Twisted Ride of Sex, Blood, and Necrophilia
now I want to see it more
My anticipation just went up.
Man, I cannot wait to see this movie.
Yeah, super excited for this.
can not wait and it's supposedly close to the 2 hour mark. only god forgives was barely an hour and a half
And it felt like a fucking eternity
So the Cannes audience hated it?
supposedly. but take that with a grain of salt. I remember reading that at only god forgives' first screening, it was booed and heavily criticized; at its second screening, it received a standing ovation.
Cannes was bound to hate it. They hated Only God Forgives and this seems to be a more extreme version of Refn's vision. I am much more excited for this than that film.
Hoping i can watch this and know wtf is going on.
they yelled " fuck you Liv " after he thanked his wife in the credits but booing at Cannes happens every year
Of course this is rated r
June 24th release!
Drive is one of my favorites and Bronson is really, really great. I dunno how I feel about this one yet, but I like Jenna Malone and the music sounds awesome. The music/soundtrack ended up being my favorite part of Only God Forgives.
I guess you can't get more divisive than this
I need to rewatch the Pusher trilogy and Bronson soon.
Anyone else see this yet? Holy fuck. Refn really pushed the envelope with this one. Immaculate cinematography as expected but many sequences felt super out of place, only to make the audience squirm (especially the ending). With that being said, I really did enjoy it. Cliff Martinez's score fit the film like a glove. I need to get the soundtrack on vinyl.
I really wanted this to be as great as Drive but this movie makes it very evident that Refn has abandoned the subtlety and nuance that made Drive so wonderful. He's gone off the deep end, for better or for worse. Maybe if he makes another big studio movie he'll be forced to have some restraint... who knows what's next on his plate. I think all NWR fans should check this out for sure. It's been burnt in my brain since I saw it Thursday night
it's a bonkers campfest and I'm still not sure if that's a compliment or an insult but I can't stop thinking about it and trying to confirm "oh yeah that happened" for a lot of scenes
What was subtle or nuanced in Drive?
