Nicolas Winding Refn is a busy man, right now he has multiple projects he's working on including Only God Forgives, I Walk With The Dead, a Maniac Cop prequel, Barbarella for TV, and he's probably had a few talks about the sequel to Drive.
So with so many projects, what does he need? A documentary. But at least he didn't have to work on this one. Laurent Duroch directed this one-hour docu called NWR, With plenty of input from Refn, along with many of his co-workers, colleagues, and actors. Names like Ryan Gosling, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and Mad Mikkelsen show up along with Gaspar Noé, Zlatko Buric and more.
The film goes through his earlier films like Pusher and Bronson all the way through Drive, and Only God Forgives. Refn talks about his latest film saying "It's based on real emotions, but set in a heightened reality. It's a fairy tale." He then added, "I wanted to do a Western, a straight up gangster movie after Valhalla Rising, But all that changed."
You can watch the entire documentary right here, it's a little over an hour long, so you might want to make sure you got some time.
