    I dunno... I have heard people say the same of Terrence Malick's films but I don't buy it. His current period stuff (Valhalla Rising, Drive, Only God Forgives, Neon Demon) may be vulnerable to this critique, but Pusher? Nah.

    The substance may get drowned out by the style but I think it's there to be found if you care to look as hard as Refn thinks you should.

    I might have seen more of his and not known it, but Drive and Valhalla Rising are awesome.

    All his films leave the audience to discuss what they perceive. Uses visual storytelling to the nth degree. @BisexualMMA

    I really enjoyed Bronson and Valhalla Rising. I haven't seen any of his other films, but I'm going to rectify that.

    All of Refn's films are visually stimulating. @georgekillian

    Hes subpar at most, while he has a great eye, his movies need more. I was ok with most but his last movie was utter shit

    There's so much hate for Valhalla Rising because hey don't understand it. Mads Mikkelsen's performance was brilliant. Go watch it. @ThulsaDooom

    Drive's probably my favourite film of this century so far tbh. Shit is unforgettable. Refn fanboy for life, no going back after that

    Its probably my least favorite after neon demon and it didnt have anything to do with not understanding it but that it was extremely boring

    Both Bronson and The Neon Demon is highly entertaining. You won't be disappointed. @Organic Damage
