“You know what my mother used to call me?…….. Dangerous”
This teaser is thirty seconds long filled with gorgeous cinematography teasing the talent of actors Elle Fanning, Keanu Reeves and Jena Malone while offering absolutely no explanation of what this film is about. The imagery suggests that this is a twisted look into the world of modelling and fame but flashes of a neon triangular symbol and the name Nicholas Winding Refn and you know this film has some much more to it.
Winding Refn is responsible for arguably the best film of 2011, Drive and while Only God Forgives wasn’t beloved (I actually enjoyed it) when Winding Refn makes a film it demands your attention. Time will tell how The Neon Demon will be received but this teaser does nothing but intrigue and a burning curiosity on how this film unfolds.
Oh yeah and there’s an actual cougar in this!
