Only God Forgives is a 2013 Danish-French-Thai co-production crime thriller film by Nicolas Winding Refn, starring Ryan Gosling, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Vithaya Pansringarm. It was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

This stylish revenge thriller stars Ryan Gosling as Julian, who runs a boxing club in Bangkok as a front for his family drug business. When his brother savagely murders a young prostitute, he is killed as retribution. The matriarch of the family – and of the criminal organisation – Crystal, arrives to retrieve her son’s body. Crazy with rage and thirsty for vengeance, she demands that Julian bring her the heads of those responsible. To do so he must face both the local figurehead of divine justice and his own personal demons.

Only God Forgives Movie Reviews

“Experimental and uncompromising, Winding Refn and Gosling's Drive follow-up is a tripped-out riff on the crime family movie in which The Grifters – literally – go to hell.” Empire Magazine

“Winding Refn's bizarre infernal creation, an entire created world of fear, really is gripping. Every scene, every frame, is executed with pure formal brilliance.” Guardian UK

“This is one of the most shocking and one of the best movies of the year.” Chicago Sun-Times

“Provided that you can stomach its excesses, it's an unforgettable and weirdly rewarding excursion into violent fantasy.” Filmink Australia

“A mesmerisingly moody and stylishly violent crime drama, Nicolas Winding Refn's film fairly drips with tangible menace and a pervading sense of dread.” Screen International

“A feverish blend of ultra-violence, corruption, bad mothering and karaoke… Simultaneously seedy and artsy, the film has a jagged stop-start pace that will mesmerise some, bore others and confound those left over.” 3AW

“as mad as a bag of prawn crackers, but as an exercise in style, it has many moments to savour.” Total Film

Only God Forgives is a bizarre crime thriller that is slow-building, intensely crafted, and riveting. Like you've come to expect from Nicolas Winding Refn, its brutality knocks you to the ground like a frying pan to the skull.” Examiner.com

“The story unfolds in a series of carefully composed tableaux accompanied by a mixture of western and oriental music, and what is enacted is a dreamlike fable of revenge and retribution.” Observer UK
