It never manages to rise above its one trick. Winding Refn directs and Mikkelsen celebrities within this ponderous exercise in veneers. Refn strongly strips plan and the conversation to uncover an image big on ideas back but inadequate in rendering. It becomes visible the producers have created a painfully boring video while the narrative plods ending just quickly for many guttural hatred occasionally. like a masterstroke of delicate atmospherics color photography seems at first the exhausted out, but this also wears down and solely compounds the entire sensation of apathy that pervades the cam.
