№ 121: "The Neon Demon"

Director: Nicolas Winding Refn
Screenplay: Mary Laws, Nicolas Winding Refn, Polly Stenham

This movie is fucked.

I didn't know what to expect going in, as I've avoided spoilers since it's release. Only seeing one film by Nicolas Winding Refn, 'Bronson,' I was barely familiar w/ his style/directorial capabilities. I've had a few of his films on my list for a while now; 'Drive,' 'Only God Forgives' & 'Fear X,' to be specific. After seeing this film, I'm excited to give them a view.

First, let me say that I thought the cinematography, sound design, musical score for this movie were fantastic. Not enough can be said for the visuals that Nicolas Winding Refn & cinematographer Natasha Braier have brought to the screen. Between the makeup, lighting & wardrobe, each frame is filled w/ so much color & vivid imagery. I like the visual contrast between the bright & colorful world of fashion & the drab motel in which our lead stays. This, I feel, helps visually reaffirm the sense of vanity carried throughout the film by the characters & the field in which they work

Secondly, hats off to the actors in the film, especially Jena Malone & Elle Fanning. The former you may recognize from her role as Gretchen in 'Donny Darko.' The latter I first knew from the English Dub of 'Totoro' as the voice of Mei. She also stars in the recent Disney film 'Maleficent.' Everyone has done a fantastic job in their respective roles. I wasn't expecting Keanu's character to act as he does in the film. *Shivers*
I don't want to spoil much about the plot of the film except to say that is was slow for a majority & not much actually happened. That is, until the third act of the film after tense scene in the aforementioned shady motel, & the films turns it to 11.

I'd really like to discuss this film w/ someone, so I recommend giving it a view for that reason alone. If anything, it's a worth a watch for the cinematographic eye candy.

The Neon Demon (2016)
I absolutely loved Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Drive (2011)'...and 'Bronson (2008)' was good too. His stylistic direction make his films very different, very artistic to watch. But even his filmmaking skills, Cliff Martinez's music and Elle Fanning's excellent performance (along with the rest of the cast) or all those flashing neon lights could not brighten up this one. It opens with an interesting scene but then takes too long to develop into anything meaningful. We're all aware about the dark side of the glamour industry thanks to plenty of those movies on it, as well as 'loss of innocence' concept mixed with it. So even after an hour of all that, it barely starts arousing curiousity and in the end when it moves into some scornworthy concepts and all is revealed - you'll be left asking yourself what exactly was the purpose behind all of this - not to mention the plotholes one may find. If it was meant to shock or disturb the audience with it's kind-of unusual conclusion; it doesn't...well, I wasn't at least. I was really surprised to find that it was competing for Palme d'Or 2016. Maybe not just my kind of movie. But I'll say this, Elle Fanning and Jena Malone were amazing and also Keanu Reeves in that weird role 😁. What are your views, if you've seen it? Please comment.
