THE NEON DEMON
2016, Broad Green Pictures, 110 min, Dir: Nicolas Winding Refn

Writer-director Nicolas Winding Refn’s first foray into horror follows Jesse (Elle Fanning), who moves to Los Angeles in pursuit of a career as a fashion model, only to find herself pursued by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will stop at nothing to devour her youth and vitality. Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone and Keanu Reeves costar in this blood-drenched thriller, shot with Refn’s customary visual panache.


ONLY GOD FORGIVES
2013, RADiUS-TWC, 90 min, Denmark, Sweden, Thailand, USA, France, Dir: Nicolas Winding Refn

Director Nicolas Winding Refn reunites with his DRIVE star Ryan Gosling, who plays amoral Bangkok drug smuggler Julian in this stylish - and bloody - crime thriller. After Julian’s brother is murdered in retaliation for a killing, his controlling, mob-boss mother (Kristin Scott Thomas) sets him on a path of vengeance. “It is ultraviolent, creepy and scary, an enriched-uranium cake of pulp, with a neon sheen... Every scene, every frame, is executed with pure formal brilliance.” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
