Only God Forgives stars Julian, played by Ryan Gosling, who is an American abroad in Bangkok Thailand. Julian is leading a risque lifestyle, making an ends by running a boxing club and smuggling drugs with his brother Billy. While attempting to keep a low profile, Julian is swept in to the tumult set forth by his brother who got in over his head with an underaged working girl. Several murders later, and the lay low lifestyle which Julian sought in Bangkok turns in to a tale of retaliation. Shot sequentially in the same manner as Nicolas Winding Refn's previous title, Only God Forgives is the epitome of action being told with minimalist dialogue. An epidemic of violence cascades gratuitously throughout the movie, while Gosling remains fairly tacit in nature. This is a film for men, by men, a realistic action tour de force to get one's blood bubbling. The seedy under belly of Bangkok, shot in a fashion that will leave the viewer reviewing his own consciousness for many hours after the film's conclusion. Refn's approach at directing offers much in way of introspection. The tacitness of the protagonist, coupled with the shots of Bangkok nightlife, will leave one wondering what one would do if placed under similiar circumstances. A dichotomy, between seeking vengeance for one's breathren, or laying low, in this case the envelope is pushed by parameters outside of one's own control. Only God Forgives is a fear driven action drama which pummels the audience for ninety minutes with beautiful cinematography, a strong cast, and actions that deafen. Given Refn's track record as a director, it's a given that his approach towards conveying multi-faceted themes is unconventional, though at the same time engrossing. An exemplification that violence is an art form. An art in which only God can allow and forgive.
