Exclusive 1:1 Interview with Only God Forgives director Nicolas Winding Refn!

07.15.2013

As a long-time fan of Nicolas Winding Refn, I always look forward to his upcoming feature films. From DRIVE to BRONSON and VALHALLA RISING as well, his work is always interesting. Of course the same can be said for his latest feature, ONLY GOD FORGIVES. The film feels in many ways like an ode to David Lynch and features his DRIVE star Ryan Gosling as well as Kristin Scott Thomas in a fantastic performance.

Sitting down with the director we discussed the idea of creating an antagonist or protagonist. He talks about his reasons for telling this particular story the way he does, which is most definitely unconventional. Coming off of DRIVE, Refn has created something remarkably different, and most definitely bizarre. For fans of the director’s work, you may be in for a strangely twisted treat. Now as far as the rest of you, if you felt that his last film was strange, you ain’t seen nothing yet. ONLY GOD FORGIVES will be in limited release as well as VOD this Friday.

I love how everyone who HASNT seen the movie yet is down voting my post. I HAVE seen it. I am a fan of EVERY film Refn has made... Thus far. But Only God Forgives is a mess. And YES, I, unlike you, HAVE ACTUALLY SEEN THE FILM.

Drive was a great movie. Haven't seen Only God Forgives, but I'm pretty sure I'll like it as much as I liked drive!

Refn is a genius. Some day soon anyone knocking him is going to feel pretty lame.

Drive is one of my favorite films but Only God Forgives is terrible

Im a fan of all of his films, but Only God Forgives was terrible. I almost walked out several times. It just wasnt entertaining in the slightest. Sure it looks pretty, although the shots are often set up like photographs and dont really emerse you. It's not really a film that makes you want to watch it. There is very little character development, or very little to make you care for any of the characters or what happens to them. The violence is just there to shock, rather than make some sort of

It's all just kind of senseless and pointless in the end.
