Only God Forgives

  • Excerpt: Set in a sweaty Bangkok, within a heat-lamp palette of harsh reds and blacks, Only God Forgives starts out in hell, then pushes even further into demonic darkness, resolutely growing more stifling and sinister. It's a far cry from the daydream buoyancy of Drive , which despite its copious violence was still a glimmering bauble, a goofy, gory riff on ideals of heroism filtered through a hodgepodge of fetish symbols and basic Freudian themes.

  • Conclusion: Simultaneously booed and lauded at Cannes, Only God Forgives is a beautifully shot film of questionable substance from Nicolas Winding Refn and actor Ryan Gosling. Every frame is perfectly lensed in this neon-tinged Thai nightmare about a drug dealer who avenges his brother's murder, but the characters are ugly and the narrative purposely vacant. Kristin Scott Thomas steals her scenes as a trashy chic mother wolf with a violent streak. A curiosity to be sure. .

Only God Forgives

High-Def Digest
11 October 2013
  • Conclusion: From Nicolas Winding Refn, if you're expecting another film that matches up with 'Drive,' prepare yourself for disappointment. 'Only God Forgives' may have the strong filmmaking qualities that we wish every film carried, but the story itself is messy and missing several key elements that connect us to the characters and story. The exquisite style compensates for the narrative flaws, but not enough to satisfy.

Only God Forgives Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
5 October 2013
  • Summary: Only God Forgives is fully a product of its filmmaker. Not that any film is not in some way a product of its filmmaker but there's a certain air of both visual familiarity and reserved confidence to the film that's quite unlike anything else out there not directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.

  • Excerpt: När Julians bror mördas kompliceras hans liv flerfaldigt. Tidigare har han i lugn och ro skött sina affärer under täckmantel på en populär kampsportsklubb. Men nu kräver hans mor (Kristin Scott-Thomas) en våldsam hämnd, vilket får Julian att korsa vägar med den elake polisen Chang (Vithaya Pansringarm). En man som ingen utmanar om man har lust att överleva. Nicolas Winding Refn fortsätter med sina personliga nyanser av just, personer.
