As we said in our 5 Things You Can Expect From Nicolas Winding Refn's Polarizing, Moody & Brutal 'Only God Forgives' feature, don't believe the hype that the film was booed at Cannes. Yes, response was vocal, but the movie also earned applause and frankly, it's something you need to witness with your own eyes. And a brand new trailer is here to give you another tease of what's to come.

Ryan Gosling, Only God Forgives
"For me, the greatest pleasure is when you make something and everyone argues about it. Because you know it’s the only time that people are actually affected by what they see. So I’ve apparently made a film that people either love it or they hate it," Nicolas Winding Refn told us at Cannes about the divided reaction his latest "Only God Forgives" received, adding: "The irony is that the people that are trying to fight it and criticize it, are criticizing it for the exact same thing they criticized 'Drive' for!"

Only God Forgives, Gosling
As you may have heard by now, the reception for Nicolas Winding Refn's latest "Only God Forgives" was mixed at the Cannes Film Festival, with a smattering of boos mixed in with applause during the press screening on Wednesday morning. Our review by Jessica Kiang didn't find much substance beyond the gorgeous stylization, but I would beg to differ that there is much more going on than just a twisted, Oedipal, coming-of-age story (of sorts). I would wager that beneath the slick surface is a story about breaking a cycle of violence...and that's all I can really write about it, without spoiling things further.

Only God Forgives, Refn, Gosling
“Only God Forgives,” Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest collaboration with Ryan Gosling just let out in Cannes this morning and the conversations on Twitter are heated and polarizing. There’s either love or loathing in the air and not a lot in between. Many are remarking that it’s similar in tone to Refn and Gosling’s last team-up in “Drive.” This stands to reason as Gosling himself told us earlier in the year, “It's very extreme. It's part of the same dream as ‘Drive,’ but it's more of a nightmare than a dream... So that's what happens when you let Nicolas loose in Thailand. There's no one around to put the reins on and he's completely unleashed.”

Only God Forgives
With the weight of expectation behind it, Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Only God Forgives” was never going to be able to deliver the same neon blue jolt of surprise that thrilled through the 2011 Cannes crowd at the first screening of “Drive.” But the audience in attendance today was prepped and primed, and practically salivating, for something that looked a little like “Drive 2” -- reuniting Refn with star Ryan Gosling in a similarly taciturn role, and also with that reflective black and fizzing blue/red aesthetic that’s as heady and addictive as a drug to the director’s fans (of whom we number ourselves, of course).

So, you're a first time filmmaker. You pour you heart, time, soul, energy and more into a passion project, spend long months shooting and editing and then finally show it off to the world. If you're lucky, you get good reviews. If you're luckier it builds up more steam and you land a distribution deal, maybe it'll get a limited release opening. Perhaps it'll break even, and some doors will open, and your next project can move forward. It's the same drill whether you're new to the industry or even, like Ryan Gosling, a big name actor turned director. Wait, scratch that...

Making movies isn't easy. Long hours, lots of down time, egos, creative differences and more can make the experience an arduous, stressful task, creating enemies for life and anecdotes galore to fill future pages of Vanity Fair (hello, "World War Z"). But it doesn't always have to be that way, and when it comes to Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling, the pair are total bros for life.
