Nicolas Winding Refn
We've cleared off some space on That Shelf for our 100 of our favourite movies of the decade. We continue with a look back at 2011 on film!
One of our favourite films this year is now on Blu-ray, so we took another look at The Neon Demon and the extra features that may or may not make it "Shelf Worthy"
Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest dreamy nightmare might be his most divisive film to date – it may also be his best.
Recorded live at Fantastic Fest, Mathew Kumar and special guest Peter Kuplowsky take on Joe Sarno's 1967 sexploitation film My Body Hungers.

On the eve of a TIFF Bell Lightbox retrospective looking at the works of still up and coming Danish auteur Nicolas Winding Refn, our film writers look at their favourite films from the uncompromising filmmaker behind Drive, The Pusher trilogy, and Only God Forgives
Only God Forgives is an endlessly pretty, but astoundingly boring and brutal exercise that shows director Nicolas Winding Refn is nothing without a proper story to back him up.
As one might expect, the flashy UK remake of Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn’s Pusher ends up being a mostly pointless exercise, adding a tonne of shallow style but very little substance to the proceedings. Director Luis Prieto pushes the source material through that Guy Ritchie gangster movie filter, and in the process robs his remake of the gritty naturalism that made the rough around the edges original work.
