Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) and Ryan Gosling (The Place Beyond the Pines) reunite in the highly acclaimed Only God Forgives--a stylish, mesmerising and thrilling journey through Bangkok’s criminal underworld.
Julian (Gosling) runs a boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. He has everything he wants for and is respected in the criminal underworld though, deep inside, he feels empty. When Julian’s brother is murdered, his mother (Kristin Scott Thomas, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen)--the head of a powerful criminal organisation--arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body. Furious with grief, she dispatches Julian to find his killers and ‘raise hell’. The stage is set for a bloody journey of betrayal and vengeance towards a final confrontation and the possibility of redemption.
Hailed as "mesmeric, mad, brutal and brilliant"*, Only God Forgives is a twisted, breathtaking, neon-drenched fairytale that you’ll never forget.

Watch Only God Forgives with different eyes and expectations to regular, classic narrative films and you will enjoy it. Also watch it for the way Nicolas Winding Refn uses his craft to create strong, permanent memories. Light is his brush in this one.
Some will say that it's a beautiful, arty masterpiece. Others will simply label it dull and boring. Basically, it's both and neither. How you perceive it will largely depend on how much you like these types of films.
It's billed as a `revenge thriller.' That may not sit well with some people as they may feel a bit mislead. If `revenge thriller' makes you think of plenty of action and fast-paced car chases, you are severely far from the mark. Yes, it's about revenge, but it's more of an `art-piece' than an all-out action thriller.
The scenes are slow, filled with painstakingly long shots of characters as the camera pans backwards. Every shot has been crafted to perfection, primarily utilising colours and lighting, over snappy dialogue. Plus, if you're watching it for the film's leading man, Ryan Gosling, you may need to know that in the ninety minutes the film runs for, he only has about twenty-two lines to say.
Basically, don't expect action and thrills (even though it's labelled a `thriller'), expect violent art and understated performances. If you can live with that, you'll love it. If that doesn't sound like your ideal way to spend an hour and a half then it's probably best to steer well clear.
the original marketing material painted the film as a revenge thriller that revolved around Ryan Gosling's character who ran a gym. It would have been easy to believe that the movie would be a violent action packed thriller with the brutality of the director's previous film 'Drive'.
This way of thinking really does 'Only God Forgives' no justice at all.
What we have is a powerful character study that is as achingly beautiful as it is stunningly emotional. Many have comment that there isn't much dialogue, but this is why the film works on a far greater level then almost all other films made in recent years. It knows when to show and not tell, which is arguably what film is meant to do.
Every shot in the film could be a photograph and every note of music is as perfect as scores can be. The main `fight' in the film is so beautiful that it really feels like a dance between two different generations, both believing that they are doing what is right.
For me this film is as close to perfect as cinema can be and I truly believe that it is a film that should be experienced.
I understand that many will not agree with me, but for all those that don't I'm hoping that an equal number will. This film may not be as action packed as their previous film 'drive' but in my view it is a far more accomplished piece of cinematic genius....
I truly love this film and cannot truly express how stunning an achievement it is.

Have to say this is one of the worst films I've ever watched. The advert for this film didn't meet its criteria. Made it look like a good film but infact it wasn't that good.Published 1 month ago by Jayde L.
