Young Jesse (El fanning) arrives in LA to conquer the world fashion (Sing I do not know how to dance not able to write not know, talent is not. But I'm cute. And this can earn (C)). It very quickly attracts to itself the attention of photographers, makeup artists, designers, what causes hate moribund and about plasticine dolls of the fashion world. But for your success always comes at a price.

The idea is not call the new: the transformation of fragile and naive provincial girl in the arrogant create (- I don't want to be them. They want to be me (C)), a brilliant behind-the-scenes world of glamour, gloss and the flashes of cameras. But meanwhile, Nicholas Refn takes the proverbial plot in a very interesting and alluring wrapper, from which it is impossible to look away (not paying attention to the almost complete lack of dialogue). Each frame — a work of art, the game of colors, textures, contrasts. Especially the lovely scene of the first fashion show where a metamorphosis takes place, Jesse. This fascinating spectacle is accompanied by music by cliff Martinez (the Palme d'or deservedly received). The only thing that is no doubt, so is genre: to attribute the film to Thriller — yeah, horror — no.

The cast coped brilliantly. El fanning. Awesome. She is equally well able to tell you how naivety, inexperience, so and the arrogance, selfishness and pride. (-you Know, like calling me mom? "You're a dangerous girl." And she's right. I threat. I know how look. And that bad thing? Lots of people would kill for this appearance. They themselves cut, inject, starve, suffer, pray, hope to be my second-rate copy (C)). fanning in 17 (at the time of filming) showed a good game, I interesting to see it, it can be chained to look themselves. Looked fine in the frame of cold-blooded Jena Malone, Bella Heathcote and Abbey Lee. Not can not mention episodic, but memorable moments with a part of Desmond Harrington (Jack) and Christina Hendricks (Robert).

Overall, not can recommend the film to all and everyone, as it is so specific that can cause the fascination as and disgust. You decide. How to me, Refn has created a neon bloody masterpiece that leaves the controversial finish of delight and uncertainty.

- Yes.

Before starting a small review (and the truth is just too sprawling opinion), I want to admit that with the work of Nicolas winding Refn a little familiar. Not bother to watch any more "Valhalla" or "Bronson" or "Only God forgive", and "Drive" managed to see only some fragments, so that "Demon" is the first film that introduced me to the work of this Dane.

This movie is very much stands out among other tapes: it is stylish, atmospheric, tense. Visually sharpened the video of the varied color palette keeps at this red tint, hinting at the "bloody" in this movie. And action, heaped up metaphors and a strange surreal characters, colors in fact simple plot. But movie because author of allows the viewer to surrender into your hands and enjoy the process of the increase of violence and blood, no inferior tapes Tarantino. Here, because there are "cute" phenomenon as necrophilia and cannibalism. Refn is directing his draws a pencil picture of the world of glamour and fashion, is the main, on first glance, the theme of the tape, drawing every detail. But all this, no matter how nasty, it wasn't, perfectly describes the current situation in this field. Abstracting from allusions and allegories, it should be noted that the cinematography and artistry emphasizes certain attributes of the areas: there are a truly elegant acting and insightful some hypnotic soundtrack from cliff Martinez, from I still then feel hundreds of small needles on the whole body, and nice video, and blowing originality of camera work. And the plot, though, and not new, defines the phrase "original submission". Important that, through symbolism, the theme of the film is fully revealed: the beauty is really scary. And worldwide and even more so.

One of the best films of the year.

The stunning beauty of the film. Juicy delicious colors, somewhere cold and lifeless, like snow-covered tundra cold starry night, somewhere warm and cozy. The abundance of beautiful girls (although, there lover — I "model" the appearance of dried cod never attracted). Actors — perfectly. Elle Fening — a standing ovation! In his later years gives odds to many famous Hollywood regulars. With every new role, all is more convinced that (thank God!) it is not the next Lindsay Lohan! Views, plans — each frame is cut and put the wall, so vividly and richly. Here importantly, Dane Nicolas Winding Refn, the Creator of the brand go, therefore, and pictures it entirely feast for the eyes, but for the sophisticated viewer, familiar to the fact that in the next few hours he head abundantly will spoil creative idea (Again, not none — a statement of fact! I like the pictures of the cute). To perceive It as standard film, which you can go to the movie, for joyride, not worth it. This beautiful picture. It can be examined, finding in each new view of something hitherto unnoticed. Feel. At least for language to try. But, imbued with the author's conceptualism not everyone.

Why so much water... In a nutshell the film does not retell it, because I'm not important. In the — the mood generated visual and sound stimuli. The film is a hallucination, if you want.

Result. Look at your own risk. Ready to that dovedetsja to see? In a nutshell, the film, after which you want to wash. But, his audience he is definitely worth
