Nicolas Winding Refn Visits the Criterion Collection

Posted July 19, 2013 06:03 PM by Webmaster

CriterionThe folks at Criterion have released a video showing director Nicolas Winding Refn visiting their office and picking up some of his favorite films from the now rather famous DVD/Blu-ray room.

The Danish director's latest film, Only God Forgives (2013), which was recently screened at the Cannes Film Festival, became available for pre-order at Amazon earlier today. A preliminary street date for this upcoming Blu-ray release, however, is yet to be revealed. You can see our listing of Only God Forgives here.

Criterion really should consider doing a trilogy set for his Pusher trilogy. They are great dark movies that would fit right in with their collection. They should also do Only God Forgives! (Which i have still yet to see)

Anyone else get a sociopath vibe from him here? I've enjoyed his work, but now the douche I detected in Drive and OFG makes complete sense.

He definitely comes across like an extreme Euro-art-house hipster, but that's okay, I guess. I'm really not a big fan of his films or his particular filmmaking attitude and style (I prefer Mann and S. Coppola in his place any day), but I do appreciate how he takes the time to craft a scene or set piece, with genuine in-camera direction, careful shot design and whatnot.

I like how he doesn't sound like a pompous film snob here.

Cool...he lined the movies back up on the shelf after browsing...

Only a true film lover would do that!

I wonder if Ryan Gosling is a Criterion fan.

That 3 minutes told me a lot about NWR. And I now see why Drive came off with such a douchey air about it. Loved the movie, but you can now totally see Ryan Gosling playing the character of Nicholas Winding Refn, much in the same way that Mark Hammil once admitted to playing Luke as if he were George Lucas.

Douchey? Do Americans always assume anyone that's slightly introverted, like NWR, is a "douche" or something if they're not jumping up and down? You can see his pure joy and interest as he browses the various films - a true lover of film. Power to the introvert.

I think he is one of the finest directors working in film today, "Drive" is a masterpiece!!

I think if I was allowed in that room they would probably get really mad cause those shelves would be bone dry after I'm done with it

@metamorphic:

Being an introvert has nothing to do with it, nor does not-being American, for that matter. And "jumping up and down"? ...where the hell did that come from? Anyways, I'm not necessarily bad-mouthing the guy.

Could this mean that the Pusher trilogy is being set for a 2014 release? Let's hope so.

Could we perhaps get a Criterion release of Valhalla Rising? Please.

Why are people saying he is giving off a douche vibe? He's simply pulling movies off of the shelves and giving a little bit of how much he enjoys or loves each one..

Found this image: http://cdn03.cdn.justjared.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/gosling-kiss/ryan-gosling-kiss-nicolas-winding-refn-28.jpg

and if he was a hard to work with/ douchey director you'd more than likely hear about it. He seems like a normal artistic director who loves to get the perfect shot.

I guess the wearing of sunglasses indoors and the name-dropping is what is causing some to call him douchey...I mean, I could do without that stuff too but he doesn't seem like a "douche," he seems like a pretty genuine film fan.

Please give Drive a Criterion release. Something with a commentary, a solid doc, anything more substantial than the fluff pieces on the Sony Blu-ray.

Looks like the Roy Batty scene in Blade Runner where he's about to crush Tyrell's skull.

He sounds to me like a kid in a sweet shop. I mean if I was there, I too would be the same. Any Refn film is worthy of a Criterion release, and Drive would be a real treat since the extras on the UK release is awful.

Hopefully this means that Drive will finally get that "ultimate" release Refn has been mentioning!
