Only God Forgives review

If there's ever been a movie in recent memory that has been divided by people that love or hate it, this has got to be it.

This movie boasts a fantastic musical score and captivating cinematography with minimalistic dialogue. You cannot be distracted at all whilst watching this movie. If you're playing on your phone or there are people talking during the movie, it's going to hurt your chances of enjoying it. You must be in a quiet room and focused on the screen to take in everything that is being conveyed throughout the film. For me personally, I was glued to the screen throughout this movie and upon repeat viewings I would notice things I had missed before and would gain a better understanding of certain scenes that were initially perplexing.

I found Only God Forgives to be a unique form of storytelling. There's no other movie that I've ever seen that is quite similar to it, and that's got to be worth something.

Boy am I conflicted about Only God Forgives.

On one hand, I appreciate every elements of the movie by themselves. Nicolas Winding Refn is an amazing visual director with a unique style, the ominous slow pace and metaphors are definitely qualities that I can get into in movies. Refn's previous film, Drive, is one of my favorite.

But somehow, it didn't quite gel for me this time. I was left with a mix of fascination, anger and boredom at the end of it. Meanwhile, I loved Blade Runner 2049, which has the same lead actor and a similar pace, and Chucky despised it. Go figure.

This is one I'll have to rewatch and re assess my opinion.
