I really wish I’d seen this in the cinema, because the visual quality of this film is quite breathtaking — and so much more incredible when you know how they made it. Laika have really outdone themselves on this one.
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.
