You may not have heard about it, but there’s a documentary coming out next week about director Nicolas Winding Refn. Word is finally starting to get out for the flick, which his fans will want to check out, particularly as it offers a deeper glimpse at a filmmaker who generally prefers to keep his motivations to himself.
Helmed by his wife Liv Corfixen, the appropriately titled “My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn” takes viewers on location to Bangkok during the making of “Only God Forgives.” It finds Refn grappling with the anticipation following the success of “Drive,” and whether to cater to expectations or to follow his own creative path. Indeed, this quote is telling: “I’ve spent three years making this film, and I don’t really know what it’s about.”
The documentary opens in cinemas and hits VOD on February 27th. Watch below.
