    Warning: 'Dying of the Light' Is Not a Paul Schrader Movie

    Don't believe everything you read. Just because a movie poster says a movie is written and directed by Paul Schrader doesn't mean it's true.

    Nicolas Winding Refn Is a Fan of Ryan Gosling's 'Lost River': "It's a Beautiful, Great Movie"

    Nicolas Winding Refn Opens Up About His Failures: 'I've come to realize I'm probably not the world's greatest filmmaker'

    This year has been a contentious one for Nicolas Winding Refn. Two years after his previous film, "Drive," was a sensation at Cannes, and garnered him a director's prize, his latest film, "Only God Forgives," had a much rockier reception on the TK.

    Marrakech Interview: Nicolas Winding Refn On Disliking Vikings, Realism & What He Learned From 'Fear X'

    It’s telling, and maybe also a little paradoxical, that of the huge array of Nordic talent assembled onstage at the Scandinavian tribute last week at the Marrakech Film Festival, the honor itself was accepted (on the delegation’s behalf) by Nicolas Winding Refn.
