To help promote the upcoming Blu-Ray release of Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives, we have an exclusive clip to share with you today. Though it doesn’t contain any actual footage from the film, what we see is a short video taken from one of the Blu-Ray’s special features. Running roughly a minute and a half, we hear actor Vithaya Pansringarm speak about his character in the film, a police lieutenant named Chang.
If you haven’t yet caught Only God Forgives, it sees Refn reuniting with his Drive star, Ryan Gosling, to deliver another electrifying effort. Set in Thailand, the film revolves around Gosling’s character Julian, an American expatriate who runs a boxing club (which is really just a front for his drug smuggling business). When Julian’s brother is brutally murdered, his mother (the head of a powerful criminal organization), makes the trip over to Thailand from America and orders Julian to get revenge on the person responsible for the murder.
Our very own Matt Donato had this to say in his review of the film:
While Only God Forgives may be nothing but a looker, it’s definitely the [Insert Current Generation’s “It” Girl] of lookers.
Only God Forgives arrives on Blu-Ray on October 22nd, 2013. Check out the clip below and be sure to pick up the Blu-Ray next week.
