Films that polarise opinion are always worth watching. When it was screened in competition at Cannes in 2013, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives was attacked with boos and defended with cheers by some audience members, both reactions indicative of the kind of puerile, extreme silliness that regularly threatens to undermine the credibility of this oh-so-serious film festival. 943 more words

I know the personal history is tragic, and it is remarkable that the novel was written during the very period it depicts and that the manuscripts were kept safe and unknown for fifty years before coming to light. 452 more words
