The trailer for the acclaimed “My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn” has finally been released, along with the announcement of a theatrical/VOD release date of February 27.
Spotlighting the director of “Drive” as he battles heightened expectations and controversial artistic impulses, “My Life…” has the luxury of featuring raw, intimate access to the artist in question. It’s directed by Refn’s wife, Liv Corfixen and the trailer teases the aggressively interrogative approach Corfixen takes when the camera is on her husband.
“I’ve spent three years making this film,” Refn laments in the trailer. “And I don’t really know what it’s about.”
For viewers of the documentary, there’s advanced knowledge that “Only God Forgives” bombs with critics and audiences alike. But these two minutes of footage work as a fascinating foray into this looming disaster, situating Refn in an alternately sympathetic and damning light.
Check out the full trailer below, and catch “My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn” in theaters or on-demand next week.
