    Only God Forgives

    ★★★★½

    Nicolas Winding Refn has never been one to shy away from controversy. Even his best films are sure to get under more than a few people’s skin, what with his measured silences, surrealist landscapes, and the occasional burst of the ultraviolence making each of his films entirely his own for better and for worse. His 2013 film ‘Only God Forgives’ is no different, while also sticking out as the very clear dark horse of his filmography. Coming off the success…

There’s just so many possibilities within the genre, so many different ideas and themes that can be conveyed and told in many different ways. The possibilities are endless, really. And within that greater genre, there are many smaller sub-genres, where more specific themes and motifs may…
