Nicolas Winding Refn, you might not know the name, but you might recognize some of the titles. Bronson (2008), Only God Forgives (2013), but mostly Drive (2011) you may have seen.
Refn doesn't like to repeat himself, I'm finding. None of the 3 films of his I've seen bear much resemblance to each other. Bronson is a prison film, Only God Forgives is a dark, nightmarish vision of Hong Kong and Drive is a tribute to 80s crime films.
The Wolf of Wall Street. I'm really kinda speechless after watching this movie. I mean.... this movie is @#$%ing INSANE! I don't just mean that in a quality sense.
I mean this is one of the craziest, wackiest movies I've seen in a long time!
What I will say is,
This film.... is the Scorsese film I was waiting for after seeing The Departed.
I would have MAYBE liked to have only waited 2 years for it instead of 7....…
