Watch: Three New Neon-Soaked, NSFW Clips For Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Only God Forgives’

Watch: Three New Neon-Soaked, NSFW Clips For Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Only God Forgives'

Bling Ring,” The Past and Inside Llewyn Davis might be out of the way, but there’s still many highly anticipated Cannes movies to show in the next week. And perhaps most eagerly awaited among them; “Only God Forgives.” This time two years ago saw “Pusher” and “Bronson” helmer Nicolas Winding Refn move up to the big leagues with his acclaimed pulp crime tale “Drive,” and he’s reunited with his star Ryan Gosling for his new film, a Bangkok-set spiritual sequel that promises to be even more brutal than its predecessor.

Three new clips from the film have arrived over at The Film Stage, and they follow the trend of glimpses from the film so far by focusing on one of the most promising elements: Kristin Scott Thomas, playing wildly against type as Jenna, the mother of Gosling’s Julian, who comes to Bangkok to mastermind vengeance against Chang, the retired cop who killed her other son. The first two clips feature Scott Thomas in action, and she continues to be wildly entertaining as a sort of underworld Lucille Bluth, while the third, shorter snippet features Gosling going head to head with Chang (Vithaya Pansringarm). It continues to look very strong indeed, and we’ll find out how the whole matches up when “Only God Forgives” premieres on Wednesday morning, with our review set to follow soon after.

Hey Washington. It's a bit comical to see you defend Gosling so vehemently by keep citing McQueen as comparison. McQueen was a very limited actor and McQueen himself knew it. Gosling has got more range than McQueen for sure.(i don't think he would appreciate your comparison) And i'm looking forward to see Gosling choosing interesting projects/roles in the future.
BUT
The reason so many thinking people thought Only God Forgives won't live up to the hype (judging from the clips so far)have more to do with the writing (yeah i've read the script and found it wanting), the tempo, pacing and the direction.

Drive was nothing new or groundbreaking in any sense. It was an okay movie with nice cinematography and soundtrack. The best acting in it wasn't Gosling but the Oscar Isaac character.

Anyone who thinks Drive is a pinnacle of great cinema or such a cool/badass film or whatever, clearly hasn't watched/studied that many films that came before it.

Gosling had always been a serious force to be reckoned with. Give The Believer, Half Nelson, Blue Valentine, and The Ides of March a shot as well. Americans love trashing talented people

People criticizing Ryan gosling for being expressionless have no Idea what they are talking about. First of all its not expressionless, its communicating without words and those who really listen can understand, secondly, He has only done those kinda roles in Drive, a little bit in place beyond the pines and may be this movie. watch, Ides of march,Crazy stupid love, Half nelson, Lars and the real girl, Fracture, all extremely different characters. any normal person can recognize this actors range. well some still wont and Im sorry for them.

Don't know why but watching these clips just gave me a sudden urge to watch Chocolate.

Oh boy. This TV soap is gonna TANK…..hard.

Actually, Adam, that is not what actors are supposed to do. They should communicate emotions. Otherwise people with facial paralysis and/or aphasia would be the ideal interpreters.

Sick of his quiet, no emotion acting? Watch Half Nelson… should clear that up for you

Holy crap that first still- KST at the hotel- reminded me of Mavis in Young Adult checking in the hotel. Hahahaha. Totally weird. Also, am I the only one who is slightly getting sick of Gosling's whole lost-boy face/mute acting?
