While the story behind "Only God Forgives" will be the reunion between "Drive" director and star, Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling, is it too early to declare that Kristin Scott Thomas might steal the show? Possibly, but in these three new clips from the movie she stands tall above the whiskey glass smashing and chase sequences.

Ryan Gosling, Only God Forgives

While the story behind "Only God Forgives" will be the reunion between "Drive" director and star, Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling, is it too early to declare that Kristin Scott Thomas might steal the show? Possibly, but in these three new clips from the movie she stands tall above the whiskey glass smashing and chase sequences.

Refn has always been a filmmaker with impeccable visual taste, and here it seems to be in full command. From Gosling calmly, mutely clenching his fists and then unhurriedly waiting to beat on someone to a very calmly unfolding cat and mouse came through the streets of Bangkok, Refn controls every frame, but will it be too much? Leave it to Scott Thomas then to truly make the screen sizzle first by calling Gosling's female companion a cumdumpster and then going on to describe the differing cock sizes between her two sons. It's great, hilarious, dark stuff.

See for yourself below. "Only God Forgives" hits Cannes next month and opens on July 19th. [Cine Republic]
