    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.

    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.

    BOO

    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

    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?
