Buckle up, cinephiles, because “NWR” is here to take you on a whirlwind tour through the mind of one of cinema’s most captivating auteurs – Nicolas Winding Refn.

From the blood-soaked brutality of “Drive” to the hallucinatory horror of “The Neon Demon,” Refn’s filmography reads like a fever dream in celluloid form – and “NWR” is your backstage pass to the madness. With interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, and more style than you can shake a blood-soaked hammer at, this documentary peels back the layers of Refn’s creative process like a particularly juicy onion.

But it’s not all serious introspection and existential musings – “NWR” also offers plenty of laughs, thanks to Refn’s offbeat sense of humor and penchant for the absurd. Whether he’s waxing poetic about the metaphysical implications of violent cinema or sharing anecdotes from his time on set, Refn proves to be as entertaining off-screen as he is on.

So, if you’re in the mood for a documentary that’s equal parts enlightening and entertaining, “NWR” is the perfect pick. Just be prepared to see the world in a whole new light – preferably one bathed in neon and drenched in blood. Nicolas Winding Refn wouldn’t have it any other way.
