SHE'S IN FASHION AND IT'S LOOKING GOOD


















THE NEON DEMON, d. Nicolas Winding Refn (2016)

A beautiful, sometimes baffling examination of the alchemy of human attractiveness, and the witchcraft needed to sustain it. 

Three claims made by Nicolas Winding Refn that may or may not be true:

1. He makes his films in chronological order, so that the story and characters can evolve in something approaching real time. 

2. He suffers from a visual impairment which means that he can't see half-tones, which is why his colour palettes are always so emphatic. 

3. If during the evolution of the film he sees a cliche approaching, he takes a sharp left away from it.

Along with Dr. Strange, this is my film of the year.
