Synopsis

Julian, an American fugitive from justice, runs a boxing club in Bangkok as a front for his drug business. When forced to seek retribution for his brother’s death by their sociopathic mother, he comes tête-à-tête with the Angel of Vengeance.

Our take

We kick off our double bill devoted to the broodingly romantic Ryan Gosling with Refn’s controversial feature. Continuing his sublimely minimalist collaboration with the gorgeous Gosling after Drive, this is a dangerous, exoticized mash-up of Asian iconography, pulp Shakespeare, and hyper-violence.
