The Neon Demon

The Neon Demon ★★★★

Empty vanity and soulless materialism, an industry mirroring its city, both devoid of humanity. Everything is high-rise glitz, fakery with real beauty and sincerity being quickly torn apart by the vultures trying to extend their own existence. Sure its not subtle, but why should it be? When it has such stunning images, such cool vibes, hypnotic score. A visceral experience that stimulates your eyes, your eyes, your mind. One of the most aesthetically pleasing, yet utterly surreal nightmares Refn has ever crafted. Disliked it the first time I saw it five years, now...I kinda loved it.
