    ★★★★½

    My first Bergman and I wasn't expecting to see what I just saw. An art film through and through, it's extremely moving thanks to the genius direction, cinematography, and especially the performances. A must see for any film fan.

    Only God Forgives

    ★★★½

    Like any Refn movie, this one takes its time. It bathes in its shots. It’s like a painting come to life. The score by Cliff Martinez is great as usual, the lighting is to die for, and the performances are heartbreaking. It’s quite slow but the blood is plentiful and Gosling is always a charmer.

    ★★★★

    I’ve never experienced the type of fear while watching a movie like I experienced with this. Several shots made me so uncomfortable I could hardly stand it. While it IS really really good, there were a few moments in the script where I thought this was completely unnecessary. It won’t be for everyone and that’s ok.

    Fantastic early Kubrick. Wonderful way to show a complicated plot. Ocean’s Eleven before Ocean’s Eleven.
