Only God Forgives – Trailer

ogf

I happen to have re-watched Drive only days before the arrival of the first trailer for Only God Forgives, the second collaboration between director Nicolas Winding Refn and star Ryan Gosling. Their first film together – part noir, part western, part fairy-tale, all intoxicating pulp fiction – was the most stylish film of 2011 (read my review here) and fans have been pining for a glimpse of their next project since it was announced some time ago.

By the looks of this red band trailer, the film will serve as a companion piece to their first collaboration, perhaps the yin to it’s yang. Drive was extremely violent, yes, but behind all of the hammering and head-stomping was a sweet romance and a slew of power ballads, whereas Only God Forgives looks to be cut from a darker cloth. A story of vengeance set amongst the world of drug smuggling and Thai boxing in Bangkok, this looks to be an intoxicating nightmare of stylish violence.

Excellent.
