Only God Forgives by Nicolas Winding Refn, the Danish guy with the big neck who directed Drive. Anyway, I'm very excited for this movie. This looks sinister as hell, darker than Drive. Stars cutie Ryan Gosling.

Here's a version of a synopsis (I saw a very detailed one a while back).

**********SPOILERS********************

Quote
Ten years ago Julian killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty.
When Julian’s brother murders a prostitute the police call on retired cop Chang – the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer, then ‘restores order’ by chopping off the man’s right hand.

Julian’s mother Jenna – the head of a powerful criminal organization – arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body. She dispatches Julian to find his killers and ‘raise hell’.

Increasingly obsessed with the Angel of Vengeance, Julian challenges him to a boxing match, hoping that by defeating him he might find spiritual release… but Chang triumphs. A furious Jenna plots revenge and the stage is set for a bloody journey through betrayal and vengeance towards a final confrontation and the possibility of redemption.

**********END SPOILERS********************


Anyway, here's one of the coolest teasers in the world.



I read a bit of the screenplay, wasn't particularly special but Refn will make something cool out of it.

Merged with previous thread, and in the correct forum since it won't be released until May 23rd.

that synopsis needs a spoiler warning, it gives away too much imo.

Ever have a feeling and you don’t know why?

why do i feel like this is the best movie of all time?

goddamn these trailers are good.

i hope the story is simple and direct like they set out.

no bullshit, no hidden 4th acts, just do the thing and fuck off.
