The Neon Demon, 16 years old and full orphan, comes to Los Angeles to live the quite big dream – the dream of the model career. Winding Refns “The neon Demon” is a film about the beauty. Not like a linear film, but rather like an illustrated book the film shows every new side. Every new setting could be descended from a fashion distance of the “Vogue”. Boy, pretty women in the pool, on the catwalk, in reflecting-overcast cloakrooms. Hyperstylistisch – which dominate colours Green, Red and blue. Still everything looks lifeless. Also it is spoken a little and if, then of the beauty.
The reduction has sharpened Winding Refn in “The neon Demon”. The 18-year-old ulna Fanning is his muse. Like a big silent film diva she strolls by the film, presents her definite beauty and becomes the model decal of a durchsexualisierten man’s imagination.
Besides, Winding Refn arrogates everything. Women, so he says, are there, primarily to be nice: “Nevertheless, everybody is futile. Everybody goes to the fitness studio to become even more futile or to receive the vanity. I find, one should hold on this. It is a matter for me in ‘The neon of Demon’ just exactly of celebrating the narcissism of our time and of selling as a quality. Nevertheless, this is something what we can be proud of. I myself am narcissistic to 100 percent. Differently I could create nothing at all. The greater the vanity, the ego is, the more interesting it becomes.”
In “The neon Demon” he guts his own narcissism substantially, and above all his annoyingly squint women’s picture. The girls in the film are brought forward, abused, violated.
His explanation ends after a desperate justification – from a revolting high vantage point: “I make the films which I would see with pleasure. I work very cost-actually, so that I can keep the control of the film. I have, for example, the ‘Final cut’. If one does not have as a director, one is in the arse. For me this is essential. There is nothing better than creativity to do exactly this what one wants to do. All the same as the others react. This moment, to be able to say, I have as made this as I wanted to make it. This is more important to me than all money which one offers to me.”
Winding Refn has been based a fan base with this setting and with his exceedingly big ego. He is revered by many like a God. However, the burr to the idol is very narrow here. “The neon Demon” does not have to offer except provoking pictures and easily dressed women a lot. It is no big film history. Rather one single empty picture rushing remains.
-Comenzamos con la idea de que el tono de piel de read chicas fuera diferente Al que tienen en la vida really. Por eso Se ven como bronceadas en read photos. ¡ Read pintamos de beige! Después queríamos más colour, porque era The neon Demon, así que dimos ese somersault. Por el tono de piel beige que escogí, off colores brillaron aún más. Después Steven [Klein] empezó a fotografiar con read luces, lo que lo transformó en otra cosa. Había que dejarse llevar, Ir con el instinto.
tienes que entender cuáles son off parámetros o cuál it el contexto. Sabes que cuando trot nannies para Steven [Klein] hay un elemento de surrealismo … cuando vez sus photos, it como un mundo paralelo, un mundo de sueños, donde sabes qué algo está pasando pero no sabes qué. Se puede sentir la tensión. En esta simpleton’s duck me dijeron: ve por ello. Cada trabajo it diferente.
it created a positive energy in the set. The whole team was captivated by her. Although this style must have been anything completely unusual for her, it was not important for him. I feel that it had great confidence in the group and in the process. It captivated everybody. It maintained the energies above because it was very entertaining to see it posing. It seemed that we saw a movie in the set. That’s why it was exciting. When I am employed behind the stages [at a fashion show] alone attempt that the person enlists rapidly, am in my world, but for me it is really exciting when I see someone in the set that acts as in a movie. Almost you get lost in the illusion.
