The Neon Demon – A Quick Capsule Review

The Neon Demon – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Well it’s no Only God Forgives. Thank god. It’s also sadly no Drive, the heights of which Winding Refn looks like he may never reach again. That said The Neon Demon didn’t drive me to switching off the film like Only God Forgives did and, actually whilst it wasn’t mad keen, I’ve seen a lot worse films.  It’s also visually quite stunning.  The issue here is Winding Refn is a pretentious son of a gun and has no worries showing that, never feeling the need to give you resolution or meet expectation.  It’s whether you buy into that style of filmmaking or not and clearly I do not.  So one for fans yes, but for everyone else?  Probably take a pass…

Best Bit: Visually stunning

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Drive, Only God Forgives, Bronson
