If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Nicolas Winding Refn ('Drive,' 'Bronson') is quickly becoming one of my favorite filmmakers. His knack for infusing crime dramas with vibrant and captivating style and instantly iconic characters is fantastic. His latest film, 'Only God Forgives' once again has him teaming with Ryan Gosling. The film revolves around a man living in exile in Bankok, operating a boxing club as a front for drug smuggling, who is tasked by his mother to get revenge on the people who killed his brother. It sounds perfect for a Winding Refn project and I'm so ecstatic to see it. Today, the first footage, albeit brief footage, from the movie has leaked online. It appears to be from a Canal+ festival trailer reel so the quality isn't ideal. It is clear, however, that 'Gangster Squad's Jerry Wooters won't be the only badass Gosling plays this year.
'Only God Forgives' hits American theaters this summer
