Only God Forgives
Ben Umstead - East Coast Editor
When it comes to transgressive films I've generally appreciated Nicolas Winding Refn's attitude and approach, but never been fully in love with the offerings. Well, that changed with Only God Forgives. OGF is an abstract action film formed from the moments in-between and parallel to the violence we expect. Ruminative, haunting and surreal, I think it's his first all out masterpiece.

I've always approached Refn's films as intellectual exercises in filmmaking; I did not expect to love this film, but I did with great passion.
Ernesto Zelaya Miñano - Contributing writer
Normally I despise artsy, slow-moving cryptic stuff - but it worked for this film. It's an engrossing, beautiful looking movie.
