wrapped this up last night. well, finished the episodes. i wouldn't say anything "wrapped up". some of the exposition in the last two was a little out of nowhere and a clear political statement, which was annoying. also, the last episode was 30 min, the first 10 of which was spent watching jena elfman masturbate (clothed) and dance around her house. those things made it feel like a bit of a troll, but regardless, refn should only do long-form TV. this was really phenomenal. the slow, deliberate pacing, the photography, the acting... all just great. really. i haven't seen many of his earlier films, but so far this is my favorite refn by far. very lynchian.
