“For me, the greatest pleasure is when you make something and everyone argues about it. Because you know it’s the only time that people are actually affected by what they see. So I’ve apparently made a film that people either love it or they hate it,” Nicolas Winding Refn told us at Cannes about the divided reaction his latest “Only God Forgives” received, adding: “The irony is that the people that are trying to fight it and criticize it, are criticizing it for the exact same thing they criticized ‘Drive‘ for!”
Well, in about a month you’ll be able to decide for yourself but until then, two more character posters have arrived for lead Ryan Gosling and the “bad guy” for the movie (for lack of a better word), Vithaya Pansringarm. The two actors are on a collision course in the film, with Gosling reluctantly pushed into avenging his brother’s murder, causing him to leave a few bodies in his wake, while Pansringarm’s cop tracks him down ruthlessly. There will be blood.
Anyway, put on some sunglasses and check out the one sheets below. “Only God Forgives” arrives on July 19th.
