Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Neon Demon, Only God Forgives) returns with six, 1-hour, psychadelic installments in Copenhagen Cowboy, and what a fever dream it is!
So weird, surreal, and otherworldly, but also captivating, mysterious, and fascinating. Sorta like if a blue-and-pink movie poster dissolved into some ephemeral mist that pulsated to electronic music while telling a story of aliens and vampires.
And the ending. Wow!
Granted, the entire series is hardcore NWR, so if you didn't like Drive, you won't like this. And if you haven't seen Drive (or don't even know what I'm talking about), start with Drive before diving into this, otherwise you'll think I'm some madman and NWR's entire aesthetic will be lost on you when you begin CC.
For all its art-house-ness, Drive is at least a conventional movie, whereas Copenhagen Cowboy is anything but.
And that's what makes it so enjoyable: its zaniness!
Now, for you insiders, Lola Corfixen is NWR's daughter. Just FYI.
