The Neon Demon ★★★★½

Still as ostentatious and beautiful as the first time I saw it. It's amazing Refn is so committed to these glossy expressions of savagery and violence, even as they prove less and less profitable. This whole film plays like a perfume commercial by way of the occult and it is so damn fascinating to pick apart or let wash over you. I get why people had problems with its storytelling and characters, but if they say they never spared another thought on The Neon Demon after their first watch they are fucking lying through their teeth.
