"Get ready, the most badass art film ever is coming your way" – Ryland Aldrich, Twitch
"Movies really don't get much worse than Nicholas Winding Refn‘s Only God Forgives. It’s a shit macho fantasy — hyperviolent, ethically repulsive, sad, nonsensical, deathly dull, snail-paced, idiotic, possibly woman-hating, visually suffocating, pretentious." – Jeff Wells, Hollywood Elsewhere
"Winding Refn’s latest film, which screened in Cannes to enthusiastic boos on Wednesday morning, is a sickening pornography of violence, and I mean that as a sincere compliment. (…) It’s a beautiful disaster." – Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
"The wallpaper emotes more than Ryan Gosling does in 'Only God Forgives', an exercise in supreme style and minimal substance." Peter Debruge, Variety
"Alongside the magnetic Ryan Gosling as another taciturn brooding antihero, the film’s juiciest pleasure is Kristin Scott Thomas as a crime empress who works a slender cigarette like a master calligrapher wielding a brush. ( …) In a brilliant casting stroke, she appears here as Crystal, a platinum-haired, poison-tongued ice queen who conjures thoughts of Lady Macbeth, Medea and Tamora from Titus Andronicus, as styled by Donatella Versace." – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
"It's a mesmerising Oedipal ballet, a lucid fever dream that pulls you in from the opening frame and doesn't let you go. (…). This is by some way Refn's most complete film. It may even be his masterpiece." – Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
