I'm wondering how this is going to turn out. Enjoyable thriller like Drive or absolute nonsensical clusterfuck like everything he's made since?

Those are certainly the consensuses about his last couple of films, but on this forum and elsewhere, Only God Forgives and The Neon Demon have their supporters. I like them both, frankly.

Hey! I liked The Neon Demon more than Drive, which just felt too derivative for me (and Ryan Gosling isn't as cool as he thinks he is). At least The Neon Demon used Keanu Reeves well and took some enjoyable left-turns while looking stunning.

It’s odd that many think Refn’s films took a left turn after Drive when that one is an outlier, with the two films after it more resembling his pre-Drive film Valhalla Rising in their slow elliptical style, metaphysical overtones, and preference for advancing story through symbol over narrative.

I like all four quite a bit.

Most were introduced to him through Drive rather then the Pusher films or Fear X seems the simplest explanation.
