In a way, this movie is a excellent example of form following function. What better method to present how empty and perverse the model stage in Los Angeles is, than to create an empty and perverse film about it? If Nicolas Winding Refn wanted to create this point, he has made it loud and clear.But the question is: did he really wish to create this point? Or did he just wish to take his cinematographic capabilities one step further, by taking the visual aesthetics to the limit, without bothering about the rest? 'The Neon Demon' is visually stunning, but lacks substance. The storyline about a 16 year old model being literally devoured by the fashion industry, is nothing more than a car for the visual exuberance of the film. It is like a 'Vogue' magazine: there are many pages, but they are all filled with glamorous pictures, and very tiny text. You can browse through it, but it doesn't have a message, another than an unlimited display of beauty.To accentuate the perversion of it all, Winding Refn had added some horror elements, which almost seem ridiculous, especially at the end of the film. There's also an irritating and very prominent soundtrack. The acting is mostly unnatural and pretentious. But if you like browsing the recent edition of Vogue magazine, perhaps this is the movie for you.
This movie begins promisingly with an eye-catching and unsettling image: then the first dialogue (or could I tell "direlogue"?) stage starts, and two things happen. One, the dialogue is awful. Two, the instruction in Acting 101 "Make the most of your pauses" has been translated here into "Leave 5 seconds silence before replying to anything which has been said." The self-consciously clever-dick direction, at its worst, leads to an interminable sequence which is supposed to represent a catwalk present in which nothing happens (and it doesn't happen repetitively, too) for what seems to be half a day. Refn thinks he is being intelligent in his direction: he isn't.The first 80% of the storyline is trite and obvious: the final sequence is ludicrous. Refn again. Perhaps it's supposed to be a metaphor or some sort of metaphysical commentary. It's still ludicrous.Lesbian necrophilia and cannibalism? I was too busy being bemused (when I wasn't being bored) to be outraged.If I had been even slightly engaged, I would have been left with a bagful of unanswered questions afterwards. As it was, I didn't care enough to be bothered, although I will chuck one out, just for fun - what was the mission of the mountain lion in the motel room? What did that add to the narrative? As expected, the Refn Fanatic Club is full of the usual "If You Didn't Understand This Parable Of Modern Existentialism It's Because You're Too Thick" nonsense, to which I respond Emperor's Fresh Clothes.If you don't see just one movie this year, please create it this one.It's a stinker. And a boring, tedious stinker at that.
I wouldn't really suggest The Neon Demon unconditionally to my friends; not because it's a terrible movie (quite the opposite) but because it's the type of film that would inevitably lead some of them to think "he said me to watch it and told it was great. What type of freak should possibly like that type of stuff?"To call it "not for all tastes" is the understatement of the year, since the majority of audiences probably won't really appreciate its very droll mix of violence, cannibalism, dark comedy, necrophilia and fetishism. In fact, I will be very surprised if there isn't any condemnation or manifestation of outrage from groups or individuals arguing that it's yet other shallow male-directed movie that objectifies, stereotypes and vilifies women. I'd also be willing to bet that Nicolas Winding Refn, who, like his fellow countryman Lars Von Trier, has a reputation for being a provocateur par excellence, had exactly this kind of reaction in mind when he made it. There is a semi-gratuitous maybe-it's-a-dream sequence where a female hero is forced to fellate a knife blade that seems designed precisely to elicit that sort of response.Deliberate excesses aside, The Neon Demon is possibly Nicolas Winding Refn's most straightforward narrative in a while (certainly more linear than Only God Forgives or Bronson). The movie follows Jesse (Elle Fanning), a 16-year-old ingenue who moves to L.A. (or, to be exact, to a seedy motel in Pasadena, run by a sleazy and sinister manager played by a cast-against-type Keanu Reeves) hoping to become a model. Her naïveté and awkwardness notwithstanding, she first catches the eye of a strong model agency head (Christina Hendrickson), then an influential photographer (Desmond Harrington) and finally a large fashion designer (Alessandro Nivola) who casts her as the centerpiece of his fresh show, much to the chagrin of established models Sarah (Abby Lee) and Gigi (Bella Heathcote), who don't take kindly to being laid by the wayside to create room for a new fresh face. She is also befriended by Ruby (Jena Malone), a seemingly well- meaning fashion make-up artist who moonlights at the local mortuary by applying her skills to create cadavers more presentable, and by an impossibly great young boy called Dean (Karl Glusman) who would like to be Jesse's boyfriend and protector. This being a horror film, at least on the surface, things begins to receive weird for Jesse when her fresh mate and rivals decide to do something about her rapid ascent to the rank of top model. To tell more would stray into spoiler territory, so I'll stop here.Like Quentin Tarantino, Nicolas Winding Refn is a master regurgitator of old category films. "Drive" was the bastard son of Michael Mann's "Thief" and Walter Hill's "Driver", with a several another ingredients tossed in for nice measure (the movie also owed a large debt to Jean-Pierre Melville's "Le Samourai"). "The Neon Demon" is his love song to Dario Argento (in particular "Suspiria", which is visually and thematically referenced multiple times) and to countless Euro-thrillers from the seventies, starting with the wonderful but little-seen (in the USA) Belgian lesbian vampire/Countess Bathory retelling "Daughters of Darkness".Punctuated by a nice electronic score by Cliff Martinez (which sounds like the greatest soundtrack that Goblin never wrote in the last 20 years), The Neon Demon is a visual feast that makes the neon- drenched "Drive" and "Only God Forgives" look almost drab by comparison. This is a gorgeous-looking film, set in pretty locations, with a cast to match.The girls are all impossibly pretty and incredibly shallow and repellent at the same time: they look and transport like poisonous snakes whose skin you would really like to reach out and caress, knowing full well that you are likely to obtain a painful bite. Male characters on the another hand are almost uniformly visually unpleasant and slimy or feral-looking (Desmond Harrington's photographer in particular looks gaunt and menacing like a wolf circling a wounded animal). Only Dean, the prospective boyfriend, seems like a good, decent human being, but this is a film that seems hell-bent on confirming the old adage that "nice guys finish last".Elle Fanning is good, especially at the beginning of the movie where she is needed to look shy and insecure -- in fact there are no weaklings in the entire cast. But the movie belongs to Jena Malone, whose hero undergoes the most startling transformation as the storyline progresses. Her performance is truly daring and committed and easy the most memorable in a movie filled with weird and eye- catching characters. When you see the film, you'll know what I'm talking about.Although The Neon Demon is ostensibly a horror film, underneath all the scary film trappings lies a very black (and bleak) comedy about a superficial globe where appearances are everything and the only method to survive is to embrace (quite literally) a dog-eat-dog attitude. It's most definitely not a film for everyone (and the only movie in newest memory where a stage involving an act of lesbian necrophilia doesn't feel gratuitous and out of place), but it's the product of a talented director who has finished a metamorphosis, which began with Bronson (2009), from "simple" category filmmaker into full- blown auteur, with a private and distinctive visual and narrative style. If you are at all interested in cinema beyond regular multiplex fare, it's definitely worth investing 2 hours of your time.
