The Neon Demon

The Neon Demon. This is Nicolas Winding Refn‘s best movie, haters. I think it was More Than One Lesson, their episode on this movie, where Tyler Smith talked about this being a perfect pairing: Refn loves image and surface and sheen, and here he finds characters to match. Mirrors everywhere, all-consumptive. Don’t forget it’s a horror movie.

My Refn power rankings:

  1. The Neon Demon
  2. Drive
  3. Bronson
  4. Only God Forgives
  5. Valhalla Rising
  6. Pusher
