Feast your eyeballs upon this sleek, cool-blue French poster for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives, which stars Ryan Gosling as the lead protagonist.
After Refn’s Drive blew my mind out of my skull with its kinetic style, brutal violence and unique storytelling, this one is high on my list of must sees. Fingers crossed I’ll be seeing it at the Sydney Film Festival next month…
“Bangkok. Ten years ago Julian killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty. When Julian’s brother murders a prostitute, the police call on retired cop Chang – the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer, then ‘restores order’ by chopping off the man’s right hand. Julian’s mother Jenna – the head of a powerful criminal organization – arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body. She dispatches Julian to find his killers and ‘raise hell’.”
