Only God Forgives - 1/9/16

Colin tries to make sense of Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives (2013), in which Ryan Gosling stars as a psychologically damaged drug smuggler, living in Bangkok, who plows a path of revenge after his brother is killed. Things get complicated with the arrival of his monster of a mother (Kristin Scott Thomas) and a seemingly supernatural policeman. Listen as we analyze the meaning of symbolism and metaphor in the film, and discuss cinema as art on this week's exciting episode!
