Silent J’s review:
Probably the best surprise from 2011. Some may be turned off by its slow build up but that's one of the things that makes this so powerful. Everything can be so calm one mintue and the moment violence pops out of nowhere, it feels like some nightmare out of a David Cronenberg film. Nicholas Winding Refn creates one of the best films of the decade. Beautifully directed, body gyrating soundtrack, well acted (though Carey Mulligan seems miscast), pulse pounding action, and it has probably one of the best car chases to ever grace the screen.
