Watch: Kristin Scott Thomas Like You've Never Seen Her Before in Three NSFW Clips From 'Only God Forgives'

At last night's Weinstein Co. annual Cannes preview, the clear standout of the evening was a scene from "Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn's Palme d'Or contender "Only God Forgives," that featured Kristin Scott Thomas like you're never her seen before.

In the thriller, an icy blond Thomas plays Crystal, the menacing matriarch of a drug empire and mother to Julian (Ryan Gosling), a manager of an illegal Thai boxing ring, who she orders to hunt down his brother (and her son's) killer.

As evidenced by the scene, Crystal is the type of mother you don't want to cross. Upon meeting Julian's new squeeze, who introduces herself as an "entertainer," Crystal greets her by scoffing, "How many cocks can you entertain in that cum dumpster of yours?" Later, she laments how her dead son's "cock" (her word choice, not mine) was bigger than Julian's.

Watch that scene below and two more from the film that showcase the film's "Drive"-like violence. The film premieres in Cannes on Wednesday and opens stateside July 19.

    Is it too early to assume she stands a chance for Best Actress at the oscars?

    Why make a film in Thailand when you have no grasp of, or seeming interest in, the culture of the region? What a load of tripe this looks to be.

    What quantifies a "grasp" on the Thai culture and region? How can you acertain the filmmaker's "interest" based on a one minute preview clip?

    This looks violent, yet awesome, but a little creepy. I think the first clip implies an incestuous relationship between Crystal and Julian.

    Should she win best actress at Cannes... or Berenice Bejo for Le Passe ?

    Maybe neither...
