Ryan Gosling w/d Nicholas Winding Refn
Set in Bangkok film focuses on the criminal dealings of a truly repulsive family of vicious drug dealers. The pace is glacial, the doings horrific. Nothing here was engaging or even interesting. This turkey was brought to us from the maker of the demented Pusher trilogy, Valhalla Rising and Drive. He seems to be hooked on the old ultra-violence. Pity he can't create a drama about actual humans.
For ten minutes the production design intrigued but when the lack of drama or substance of any kind became clear I lost all interest.
