Watch: Trailer for Doc 'My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn'
In a small amount of time, director Nicolas Winding Refn has made a name for himself as a unique auteur filmmaker, building up an impressive fanbase of cinephiles. Refn found himself in the spotlight after the success of Drive starring Ryan Gosling, and if you've ever wondered what it's like being a filmmaker working on your next project after such success, then you'll want to check out this documentary My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, directed and shot by Refn's wife Liv Corfixen. The film follows Refn as he works on Only God Forgives up through its debut at Cannes, and a trailer has surfaced. Watch!
Here's the trailer for My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn from Radius-TWC:
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.

"I spent three years making this film...I don't really know what it is about." Been there. I think we all have been there.

I think I've seen bits of this before in a shorter doc, yes? Either way, it's good to see Refn admit to having doubts and problems with Only God Forgives. Takes a bit of the sting out of how horrible that movie was and makes me more sympathetic with him. Here's hoping he gets back on track soon with The Neon Demon...

The movie itself ended really bad (Only God Forgives), and now we see why. However, I hope everything ended up good for a family ...

Good for him! I love his work. I think it's unique and different. I'm a writer and I feel the same way sometimes.
