Ryan Gosling is back and better than ever in the instant cult classic, Only God Forgives. Reteamed with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn, Gosling stars as Julian, a drug-smuggling expatriate who knows the ins and outs of Bangkok’s criminal underworld like the back of his hand. Julian’s life gets violently turned upside down, when his mother convinces him to track down his brother’s killer and avenge his brother’s death.

If you’re a fan of violent hand-to-hand combat and hypnotic, spellbinding thrillers, then this is the movie for you. But don’t take our word for it.

Read the full transcript of our conversation with Mr. Ryan Gosling here:

Sony Entertainment Network: When you initially read the script, what stood out that made you decide to be a part of this film?

Ryan Gosling: It wasn’t really about the script. It was more about working with Nic. In that, we had had this great experience making Drive and him being offered a lot of things which were a lot bigger. And he was still deciding to go to Thailand and make this small film that was certainly going to divide people. And I just felt like I wanted to go on that [journey with him].

SEN: This is your second film with director Nicolas Winding Refn. What do you enjoy most about working with him?

RG: His family kind of comes everywhere that he goes and he’s just kind of great. I mean it’s funny for a guy that makes movies that are as violent as they are, he’s such a sweet family guy…so I think I like that duality of him because who he is privately is so much different than the films that he makes.

The Gangster Squad: If anyone was wondering what 1987’s The Untouchables would look like if it were made today, The Gangster Squad just might be the answer. Instead of chasing Al Capone on the streets of 1920s Chicago, though, these cops are after Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) in the city of Los Angeles during the 40s and 50s. This first trailer shows a lot of Ryan Gosling, who reunites with his Crazy, Stupid Love romantic interest, Emma Stone, and nicely sets up the story of a police unit that has to go outside the law to bring down the crooks.
