Nicolas Winding Refn's Too Old To Die Young

Post by Apostate »

Watched this on Amazon over the holiday and it was brilliant - but I sort of wish I hadn't as like the French film Martyrs I found it very disturbing and it left me feeling bad. I know Refn is highly unconventional and we should not expect "happy endings" but the brutal fates handed out to some key characters in whom I had foolishly made an emotional investment was too much.

I wouldn't recommend anyone watch it - but it is undoubtedly a masterpiece of television.
