The Neon Demon premiere: A chat with Nicolas Winding Refn and Elle Fanning
Set for release in July, The Neon Demon caused controversy in Cannes polarising the opinion of the public and critics.
Feeling like either a pure masculine fantasy dipped in gold and glitter or a monumental fashion editorial, the Drive director’s latest film is, to say the least, astonishing, and promises to spark fierce controversy. Nicolas Winding Refn has created some kind of mesmerising beauty-horror film, with a perversity so elegant it’s hard to resist.
We caught up with director Winding Refn and lead actress Elle Fanning to talk about the movie and what influenced the filming process.
