On Uilick’s Radar: Too Old To Die Young

This, for me, looks beast. Coming out at an unspecified time this year.

It’s a new tv series (limited I presume) by Nicholas Winding Refn. He’s the guy who brought us Drive, Only God Forgives, and The Neon Demon.

It looks like a really deep and graphic cop/criminal drama starring Billy Baldwin, John Hawkes & Jena Malone to name just a few. If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say Refn, who has a penchant for grimy, graphic violence, is going for his own fucked-up take on Heat.
By that I mean he’s aiming for a sprawling, violently-stylised crime epic.

I think it’s awesome he’s staying in LA. The guy is from Copenhagen, Denmark so he has an extremely unique take on criminal gangs and seedy underbellys, coming somewhat from the centre of the “Eurotrash” capital of the world.

What do you think? Would you watch this?

Bear in mind, this guy is colour blind.
