France, Sweden, Thailand, United States | 2012 | Nicolas Winding Refn
Ryan Gosling and an unforgettably malevolent Kristin Scott Thomas star in the stylish and violent new film from the Danish maker of Drive, Bronson, and the Pusher trilogy. It's a languid, cryptic fable of murder and revenge set in a seedy nighttime Bangkok of boxing clubs, brothels, and bars. Gosling's ex-pat drug smuggler locks horns with a stern, sword-wielding Thai policeman known as the "Angel of Vengeance” in a lurid Lynchian landscape that seems part dream, part purgatory.
