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.

Only God Forgives

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.

Tonally falling somewhere between "Valhalla Rising" and "Drive," the latest from Refn takes the neon slickness of the latter and gives it the slow burn treatment of the former for a truly unique experience. Dialogue is minimal (Ryan Gosling says less here than in "Drive," and much of the movie's dialogue is in Thai), and the story, by appearances, is thin (a vengeance tale, pitting two unstoppable men against each other), but the subtext running throughout is rich. Yes, Gosling's character has more to him than a five o'clock shadow and brooding visage, and when the blood comes...well, Refn doesn't hold back.

Check out the new trailer. "Only God Forgives" arrives on July 19th.
