Ryan Gosling plays a crook Bangkok. When his brother is killed, his mother (Kristin Scott Thomas) arrives to demand revenge. This was directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, who worked with Gosling in “Drive.” I pretty much hated that movie too, but at least it had some velocity. The pacing here is glacial (with the long pauses eliminated, it would be 20 minutes long). It’s painfully pretentious and intensely serious. What little brutality from the villain is almost always off-screen. The saturated, stylized look references Chinese director Kar Wai Wong, so while it looks cool, it’s just tedious. The only thing to recommend it is the amazing chameleon performance by Scott Thomas.
