ONLY GOD FORGIVES Review 10

ONLY GOD FORGIVES Review

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.

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."
