If you're anything like us, you're stoked for Nicolas Winding Refn's ONLY GOD FORGIVES, which reunites the director with his DRIVE star Ryan Gosling in a vengeance-fueled thriller that is sure to shock and surprise. Earlier this week we dropped the first three clips from this highly-anticipated film, which is set to premiere at this years Cannes Film Festival, and today we have our first behind-the-scenes look as Refn discusses the similarities between sex and violence (two of our favorite things!). If you are the type to stay clear of spoilers, worry not as this one-minute clip doesn't contain any.
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’.
ONLY GOD FORGIVES stars Ryan Gosling, Kristen Scott Thomas, Tom Burke, Gordon Brown, Joe Cummings and Taiwanese popstar Yayaying.
