The Neon Demon (Nicolas Winding Refn – 2016) B+

A sweet young pretty girl new to LA and is trying to get into the modeling world. Soon she is discovered and befriended by a make-up artist and a couple of other “older” models. She is soon going on photo shoots with a weird photographer and parties and things might be promising….but this is not that kind of movie. It is not a traditional rags to riches, or a Hollywood story of success and tragedy or really any form of typical narrative. This goes dark and weird to places figuratively and literally that I did not expect. It does it in style with gorgeous shots and flamboyant dizzying colors. Let loose and stick around for the ride.
