Cult Projections in conjunction with the lovely folk at Icon Films have five double-passes to see the blistering new movie from modern master filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn, Only God Forgives, which just won the major film prize at this year’s Sydney Film Festival.
“Only God Forgives is a stylish east-meets-west thriller, set in the back alleys of Bangkok’s criminal underworld. Julian (Ryan Gosling) runs a Thai boxing club in Bangkok, as a front for his drug business. When Julian’s brother (Tom Burke) is killed, after savagely murdering a young prostitute, his mother (Kristin Scott Thomas), the head of a vast criminal organisation, arrives to collect the body. Crazy with rage and thirsty for vengeance she demands the head of the murderers from Julian; but first, Julian must confront Chang (Vithaya Pansringarm), a mysterious retired policeman - and figurehead of a divine justice. This sets in motion a range of events that leads to a bloody path of rage, betrayal, ultimate confrontation, and possibly even redemption.”
