Still image from the film Only God Forgives
Julian (Ryan Gosling) runs a Bangkok boxing club that is a cover for his much seedier line of work. His mother, Crystal, (Kristen Scott-Thomas) is a major dealer in the U.S., and a woman not to mess with. She comes to Bangkok with a score to settle, thanks to her eldest son, Billy’s reprehensible acts and their aftermath. Julian is pushed to strike revenge, unaware that they are at odds with a strange police officer who is more than he appears. This ultra-violent, stunningly visual film pays subtle tribute to filmmakers such as David Lynch and Sergio Leone, while remaining the controlled vision of its creator. (35mm presentation)

Director Nicolas Winding Refn is scheduled to be present for the September 13 screening.
