Unforgivable: Only God Forgives Is One of the Worst Movies Ever Made

Premiering in May at the Cannes Film Festival, Only God Forgives was viciously barbecued by the critics after the film was booed so loudly that Ryan Gosling didnít even show up for the red carpet.

Ryan Gosling, looking dangerously anaesthetized, is an American thug who runs a brutal boxing club that doubles as a drug den in the slums of Bangkok. When his sub-mental brother rapes and slaughters a teenage whore, her father slices his head off. Enter a catatonic cop, who proceeds to Cuisinart everyone in sight,

What is he [Gosling] doing in this dung heap at the top of his career, giving a performance that makes roadkill look like Road Runner? Doesnít he have an agent?

It was pretty bad, I watched it with my cousin last night. It wasn't nearly as gory as the reviews, but it was every bit as boring as made out to be. I really, REALLY tried to like this but couldn't....dat ending? *rolls eyes

Not my genre,or interest...but maybe a case of taking one's "ART" too seriously. 
Hell, if shot DTV for about $500....the script might be pretty good, but for Cannes, who knows?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
