    Interesting if you're a fan.

    From reading other reviews it seems some scenes may have been cut from my in-flight viewing version. Don't think it would have made much difference though.

    A beautifully crafted film, with consideration in every shot and a kick-ass soundtrack. Winding Refn certainly earned his Best Director award at Cannes this year, helped greatly by the outstanding performances of Gosling and Mulligan. I'll definitely need to see this again, and while I'm not much a fan of ultra-violence I couldn't imagine it working any other way in this film.

    So epic it hurts. I'm willing to gloss over the few plot questions it leaves and just be enveloped by the killer combo of Nolan & Zimmer (whose soundtrack, incidentally, makes *everything* feel epic if you put it on loud enough).
