Netflix Streaming: “Only God Forgives,” 2013 (Dir. by Nicolas Winding Refn)

Director, Nicolas Winding Refn, has received a lot of backlash for Only God Forgives – some deserved, some not so much. After the beloved Drive with Ryan Gosling as the ever-stoic bad boy, it seems that audiences were expecting a sequel or rehash of similar themes with Winding Refn’s most recent release.
