My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn is directed and shot by the titular filmmaker's wife Liv Corfixen and captures private and intimate moments to which a traditional documentary crew simply wouldn’t have access. The film follows Refn’s own deep conflict as we witness him wrestle with the particularly challenging production of Only God Forgives. The result is a fascinating, detailed look at a creative genius at work and also a portrait of a director torn between the public’s desire for a sequel to Drive and his own mission to explore more challenging narrative territory. The film hits limited theaters and VOD on February 27th.
