    INTERVIEW: Nicolas Winding Refn talks style and ‘The Neon Demon’

    It’s both a disarming and strangely twisty an experience to interview a director like Nicolas Winding Refn, who knows and is at ease with the fact that they’re work is divisive. The eccentric filmmaker is well aware that some people hate his movies, something he’s very comfortable talking about, as I learned a few days […] More

    Nicolas Winding Refn next film will be ‘I Walk With The Dead’

    I know that filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn is becoming a bit of a love him or hate him type of figure, but I seem to have gone the opposite route as most. While I was very much kept at arm’s length with Bronson and Valhalla Rising for example (which plenty of folks love), I’ve been […] More

    Weekend Openings: 7/19/2013

    Nothing says mid-summer blockbuster quite like a geriatric action comedy led by none other than John McClane.  In Red 2, Bruce Willis reunites with his gang of retired operatives for another go at stopping crime.  Speaking of reteamings, Nicolas Winding Refn and muse Ryan Gosling join forces again in their much-anticipated beautifully brutal crime thriller […] More

    Ryan Gosling and company talk Only God Forgives!

    If I actually were to sit down and create a bucket list of who I’d like to interview, Ryan Gosling would undoubtedly be high up on that list. I still haven’t gotten to sit down 1 on 1 with the man, but this week I was invited to a pretty swanky Manhattan hotel to participate […] More

    Only God Forgives (***½)

    Oh boy…Drive, this is not. Nicolas Winding Refn is back in his Bronson/Valhalla Rising type comfort zone with Only God Forgives, a hybrid flick if ever there was one. Personally, as much as I adore his most recent film, I was left just as cold by those earlier works. Here, he’s threaded the needle and […] More

    With only about two weeks to go until the release of Only God Forgives, Nicolas Winding Refn‘s second collaboration with Ryan Gosling after the high acclaimed Drive, a new International Trailer has hit the web. I’ve seen the film and found it to be incredibly interesting, though about as different a movie as possible from […] More

    The Invisible Contenders – Where Are We Not Looking?

    I love the Oscar speculation game.  Reading into films, performances, filmmakers, productions, etc. and deciding whether there’s “something” there that could gather awards attention.  Every year, there’s a small, out of nowhere film or performance that breaks out in the most mysterious manner. We’ve often credited Clint Eastwood with executing the late entry contender that steals it all away.  When Million Dollar […] More

    Kristin Scott Thomas Steals the Show in the New Trailer for ‘Only God Forgives’

    Radius TWC released the new trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s upcoming Only God Forgives that premiered at Cannes last month. Though the film seemed to received mixed reception, one thing that has remained constant is versatility and amazement that many have with Kristin Scott Thomas. Ryan Gosling also stars and what is sure to have […] More

  • 2014 Oscar Predictions for Original Screenplay Updated! – McCarthy vs. The Coens?

    One of the few categories that can truly celebrate originality and the creative juices that go into a project is Best Original Screenplay.  It’s the category that has been known to reward many different genres including comedies like Juno (2007), films about sexuality like The Crying Game (1991), even some science fiction if you consider […] More
