Everybody loves Nicolas Winding Refn too. The Danish director always had a cult fan following from his Pusher trilogy, but after the success of Drive, his name got etched into the minds of movie buffs world-wide.
Following these statements, you'd think it natural that the only cooperation these two idols have done, would also be highly cherished. And yet, Bronson somehow managed to slip through the cracks, and exists only in the murky world of unrecognized gems. Which is a real shame, as it's truly a fantastic movie.
The film has it all: There's fighting, there's laughter, there's growling, there's nudity, there's more fighting, there's madness, there's sex, there's elaborate face-painting, and did I mention that there's also fighting?
Be sure to watch it with subtitles though, because if it's one thing Tom Hardy is known for, it's mumbling every word into a mangled slush-language.
