    Nicolas Winding Refn On the Tepid Cannes Reaction to 'Only God Forgives' and Why 'Silence is Cinema!'

    Few films at Cannes this year were more anticipated than Nicolas Winding Refn's follow-up to "Drive," the ultra-violent pic that netted him the Best Director award at the festival in 2011. Acquired by RADiUS-TWC prior to the festival, "Only God Forgives" (out this Friday in theaters and on VOD) had ...

    Few films at Cannes this year were more anticipated than Nicolas Winding Refn's follow-up to "Drive," the ultra-violent pic that netted him the Best Director award at the festival in 2011.

    'Only God Forgives' Director Nicolas Winding Refn at Cannes: 'I have a fetish for violent images' (No Kidding)

    Nicolas Winding Refn might have expressed disdain in 2011 for Lars von Trier's infamous Nazi remarks at Cannes, but the fellow Danish auteur is no less a provocateur, as evidenced by his bleak, ultra-violent Palme d'Or contender "Only God Forgives," which premiered this morning at the festival, and ...

    Trailer of the Week: Ryan Gosling is Back and Bloody in Red Band for Nicolas Refn's 'Only God Forgives'

    Before the Trailer, We Thought: Few films are more anticipated this year than the re-teaming of Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling, the most sadistic director/star bromance currently in operation. 2011's "Drive," one of the most divisive films of that year after killing on its debut in Cannes, is...

    The Road To 'Drive': The Films Of Nicolas Winding Refn

    After months of build-up, moviegoers finally got a look at "Drive," the much-acclaimed crime thriller by Nicolas Winding Refn, this weekend. With a C- Cinemascore (whatever that's worth), it's clearly a divisive picture, but there's been enough passion spent on the film, here and elsewhere, to suggest that plenty of discerning cinephiles have fallen for it in the way that several Playlist staffers have in recent weeks. And if you were one of them, Refn might have been a new face for you; the director has been active for fifteen years now, but only really started to come to attention of U.S. film fans in the last few years (or arguably, months...

    Nicolas Winding Refn Says 'Dying Of The Light' Fell Apart Because Harrison Ford Didn't Want To Die

    We realize that you may be suffering from a little Nicolas Winding Refn fatigue from all the coverage we've been doing on the director and his fantastic new film, "Drive," but the filmmaker and star Ryan Gosling have been on a major press tour for the film pretty much since its Cannes debut. One of the hopefully final stops for the Danish director was at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) a few nights ago for a sneak preview of his latest, and we were on hand for the Q&A. Refn kept the Brooklyn audience rapt in attention as he told a few now-familiar tales about how the film came together and his first prescription drug-fueled meeting with Gosli...
