“Only God Forgives”: Too Much Brutality?

Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn‘s follow-up to “Drive” (which many found darkly stylish but which I found less than met the eye) is the even more violent “Only God Forgives” (which I would watch only to see Kristin Scott Thomas play a villainess, not to see Ryan Gosling be camera-worshipped again by the obviously has-a-hard-on-for-him director). Is Refn revelling in sexual brutality? Discuss.
