Nicolas Winding Refn has emerged as a uniquely talented international filmmaker with an eye for visceral, iconic images. A 21st century mythmaker from his cult Pusher trilogy to the award-winning Drive and Only God Forgives, Refn infuses a sophisticated avant-garde sensibility with the grit of exploitation cinema. This book relates Refn's films to the ideas of Nietzsche, Canetti, Blanchot and others, and to aesthetic theory in general. It also asks why the West has become a largely artificial society, unable to generate new communal mythologies.... about the Zone, a€œnot good or bad, but wretched ones.a€ How blissful could it ever possibly be, this heaven of the wretched ones which seems more like a depression ward or recovery center? 162 Nicolas Winding Refn and the Violence ofArt.
