While it’s still not confirmed what film Nicolas Winding Refn will make next, almost exactly a year ago, anticipation was high for his latest feature, Only God Forgives, as it was announced for the Cannes Film Festival line-up.

Coming from VFX supervisor Martin Madsen, the five-minute detailed video shows the removal of dolly tracks and more, but specifically zeroes in on the many blood-filled scenes, notably the removal of an eye and a forearm.
