NICOLAS WINDING REFN

Feature Film | UK, KY 2008 | 92' | Hommage Nicolas Winding Refn

With elegance, power and sardonic humour Refn directs this biopic of the infamous British felon Michael Peterson in a highly artificial and physical style. MAD MAX actor Tom Hardy is stunning as a bald, moustached mountain of prison muscles, with his obvious relishing of his exuberant, threatening aura reminiscent of Malcolm McDowell’s spectacular stand-out role in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. The jarring use of pop music is another aspect that evokes Stanley Kubrick’s milestone picture.
