Bring Out the Bodies: A Reminder

Only God Forgives enters limited release today in most corners of the globe, but I was fortunate (or, unfortunate?) enough to see it back in May. The film, though highly anticipated by many, is a controversial mixed bag of style, superficiality, and raw violence...and I've been anxiously awaiting hearing/reading the opinions of others as they join the conversation.  If you haven't already, check out my initial write-up, and read beyond the rating.  Is it a bad genre film working towards art? A good art film muddling genres?  Is it a pretentious, over-cooked bloodbath without substance?  Is Ryan Gosling's silent moment over? Is this the Refn film we thought we wanted, but maybe didn't? Can we all agree that Kristin Scott Thomas is amazing here?
