Destroy All Monsters: Gazing At THE NEON DEMON

Spoilers for The Neon Demon, which I recommend everyone see at least twice. Looking is everything in Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon. Besides being the kind of cinematic scopophilia masterpiece that we only seem to get every couple of...

Interview: Nicolas Winding Refn & Elle Fanning Talk THE NEON DEMON and the Art of Rewriting

On a balmy afternoon in the Silver Lake neighborhood in Los Angeles, ScreenAnarchy joined a few hipster film journos on a trip to a castle at the top of a hill. Inside the castle filled with taxidermied beasts, Nicolas Winding...

Have Your Say: What Is Your Favorite Nicolas Winding Refn Film?

Nicolas Winding Refn's Next Is Horror Picture THE NEON DEMON
