Anything that comes from the delightfully obtuse mind of Nicolas Winding Refn is worth your time and his latest film, The Neon Demon, looks to be no different.
The plot describes the story of Jesse, an aspiring model, who moves to Los Angeles, where her vitality and youth are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means to get what she has.
With an intriguing cast including Elle Fanning, Alessandro Nivola, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Abbey Lee and Jena Malone, the first trailer promises hints of Black Swan and Suspiria with its wild and beautiful colour stylings.
The Neon Demon will premiere at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and go on general release later this year. This writer for one will happily trample across an artfully arranged room full of models to see it.
