Summary: This film creates a satanic and brutal world. It is unbelievably violent and disturbing but to create this 'evil' world, it might be necessary. Completely comprehensible why this film was criticized lot but positive that it needs more attention and, if it's possible, respect for creating such piece.
Summary: I saw this film at Lincoln Center in NYC before it was released. I am a huge fan of Drive, but I heard this one would be different. I understand why some people didn't care for OGF, but I loved that they took it in the opposite direction of a typical revenge film.
Summary: This film is dedicated to Alejandro Jodorowsky. To truly understand the nature of the film you must know the work of Alejandro first. It is a beautiful poem about Karma, God Destiny and Humanity. It is not for amusment or joy. Loved every minute of the movie.
Summary: Fans of ‘Drive’ and even to a certain extent Ryan Gosling can look away now because this is Nicolas Winding Refn’s film. It is closer in tone to Valhalla Rising and he hasn’t pandered to the audience expectation, anyone expecting Drive 2 will probably be disappointed.
Summary: Only God Forgives directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, an intense film, aesthetically perfect with beautiful colors, beautiful performances, a directorial no flaws, a wonderful movie, perfect, a beautiful soundtrack, not a fim suitable for everyone though. This is the real masterpiece of Refn.
Summary: Only God Forgives is a visually mesmerizing masterpiece. Nicolas Winding Refn's direction is even more stylized than Drive. Beautiful cinematography, neon-soaked lighting with surreal dream sequences, very much like a David Lynch film. The performances are excellent.
