Sitting in the theater at the LA Film Festival's Gala screening of Only God Forgives, director Nicolas Winding Refn gave a preface to the audience before letting the film roll. "I'm a pornographer, (audience laughs) and I like to make things that really excite me. So if Drive was a drug experience, I'd say that it was like the best cocaine you've ever had, and lots of it. With this film, I wasn't so much interested in cocaine as I was into LSD. Not the kind of LSD that makes you really happy and want to have a lot of sex and stuff like that, but the kind of LSD that makes you see really crazy things that aren't there, like sitting in the armchair and you just totally melt into it, you hear voices telling you really important things, you know, stuff like that."

It’s a story about growing up and friendship and cherishing the small, fleeting moments, in life.
