My Chat With Nicolas Winding Refn

For Rolling Stone, I sat down with Nicolas Winding Refn, the director of Drive, which lots of people like, and Only God Forgives and The Neon Demon, which lots of people don't. Since I've found his last two movies pretty interesting, I wanted to chat with him about them. I'm glad I did: I walked away from the experience convinced he's no mere provocateur. There's substance underneath the flourishes, and we talked about it.
