Only God Forgives (Nicolas Winding Refn, 2013). Lynchian
Bangkok, in corridors and nightclubs. Is Nicolas Winding Refn more interested
in setting – cities – than character? Like the Los Angeles of his less
experimental, less violent Drive, his unnervingly quiet Bangkok is nocturnal,
in red, blue and yellow lights. The acting ranges from catatonic to catatonic,
dialogue is minimal and every frame is art. The dedication is to Jodorowsky,
which explains all the severed arms and hands. Nicolas Winding Refn should
direct the next James Bond film. Seriously.
