The Neon Demon


Although the camera shots were pleasing there was nothing to the plot of this film. 110 minutes of overly drawn out silences and forced metaphors which led to nothing anyway. There were only a few covnersations that actually had some substance but the rest were cringeworthy, especially the initial bathroom scene…

‘I bring the singular, the narcissistic, the high art’, a quote from the director Nicolas Winding Refn, yet all that seems forced here, it is a really shit attempt to blast the fashion industry for it’s bastardisation of beauty standards and exploitation of women, hell, Zoolander does it better, yet this is trying to be smart and obscure yet fails to deliver any plot. A lesbian necrophilic scene is thrown in to get audience reactions yet had no other purpose unfortunately.
