A trio of new clips for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives has been released online. These three clips really don’t disappoint and from what we’ve seen so far, Nicolas Winding Refn seems to have outdone himself once again, topping the hyper-beautiful, hyper-violent world he created in Drive. Directed by Winding Refn and co-starring Vithaya Pansringarm, Tom Burke and Byron Gibson, Only God Forgives will open in France on 22 May 2013, with a UK date yet to be confirmed.
Julian (Gosling) lives in exile in Bangkok where he runs a Thai boxing club as a front for the family’s drugs smuggling operation. When Julian’s brother Billy is killed their mother, Jenna (Kristin Scott Thomas), arrives in the city. She wants revenge and forces Julian to find the killer. Julian’s contacts in the criminal underworld lead him directly to The Angel of Vengeance, a retired police officer who knows everything and who is both Judge and Punisher. Jenna demands that Julian kill The Angel of Vengeance, an act that will cost him dearly.
