Only God Forgives ★★★

Nicholas Winding-Refn goes full Gasper Noé in this visually sumptuous yet thematically hollow mood-piece. The film is built around the conflicting urge to at once seduce and repel its viewers. Baffling and hypnotic, OGF boasts an aesthetically assured composition but its flagrant dismissal of pacing and plot serve to undermine not beguile.
