Pacific Rim Blue Jasmine Only God Forgives The Hunt
It’s hard to believe we’re halfway through the summer, but no worries because July has fireworks, hot dogs, and movies! June was a soft month with staid comedies like “The Internship” and divisive blockbusters such as “Man of Steel” and “World War Z.” But, the next thirty days or so should have more than enough for you whether your appetite is for explosions or more subtler fare with a bit more substance.

Only God Forgives Ryan Gosling
In just a few weeks, you'll finally see the result of Ryan Gosling asking, "Wanna fight?" in "Only God Forgives." As you might guess, it's violent, ugly, brutal and vicious stuff...but it's quite beautiful too. Yes, that's due to Nicolas Winding Refn's almost obscene skill behind the camera -- there is barely a frame out of place -- but also due to the score by Cliff Martinez. Just like in his previously collaboration with the director on "Drive," it's integral to establishing the mood and tone of the film and we have an exclusive treat for your ears today from the official soundtrack.

Few filmmakers have quite the crowded dance card that Nicolas Winding Refn boasts. Speaking to The Playlist on the eve of the North American premiere for “Only God Forgives,” Refn seems deeply pleased by having attached himself to so many projects, each one sounding more exciting than the last (particularly the mooted “Valhalla Rising” continuation). However, Refn’s next project is a detour into television, with the series “Barbarella,” which he describes, in typical Refn fashion, as “the ultimate fetish.”

When we last sat down to talk to Nicolas Winding Refn, he spoke about a project he was developing that would be set in Tokyo. He mentioned a fondness for the Yakuza, suggesting that this film would find him re-visiting a crime underworld similar to that in “Only God Forgives” and “Drive.” But no one could have guessed it would be… a sequel to “Valhalla Rising”?

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!"
