Ask JKM a Question: Only God Forgives (2013)?
A reader named Julie writes:
"Have you watched Only God Forgives yet? I searched your blog and couldn’t find any review. I would truly love to read your ‘reflections’ on it as it is a very strange movie and you seem to really like strange movies”
Julie, thank you for writing.
Whenever a reader takes the time to write to me and ask for specific review, I make every effort to comply. Accordingly, I will post my review of the film tomorrow, so keep an eye out.
I don’t want to spoil anything today but I will acknowledge now that I found Only God Forgives mesmerizing. It’s violent and bloody in the extreme, but I couldn’t take my eyes off the film. The movie's use of color, for instance, is extraordinary, and at least one character is unforgettable, a corollary to Bardem's villain in No Country for Old Men (2007).
So tune in tomorrow at 6:00 am.
