The Neon Demon (1/8)

The Neon Demon directed by Nicolas Winding Refn was definitely the most slept on film of 2016.

Doe-eyed and aspiring model Jesse (Elle Fanning) moves to LA, and finds herself being absorbed into the dark side of the industry. The film was thought to be too kitschy and abstract, however the Refn intended for the film to play out as a twisted, dark fairy tale. The striking cinematography, criticised for being ‘pretentious’, and indifferent acting, criticised for being ‘wooden’, were actually the film’s greatest assets and pulled you into the exclusive and highly stylised ‘fairy tale gone wrong’ world.

The Neon DemonΒ is iconic, beautiful, and far more complex than most critics thought.
