One of the film's most striking features is its use of color. In an interview Nicolas Winding Refn stated that he is in fact colorblind and can only perceive contrast and primary colors. See more »

I loved this movie, it was both captivating and visually stunning, the story focuses around Jesse who moves to Los Angeles just after her 16th birthday to launch a career as a model. The head of her agency tells the innocent teen that she has the qualities to become a top star. Jesse soon faces the wrath of ruthless vixens who despise her fresh- faced beauty. On top of that, she must contend with a seedy motel manager and a creepy photographer. As Jesse starts to take the fashion world by storm, her personality changes in ways that could help her against her cut-throat rivals.
This movie was original and beautiful, Elle Fanning's performance was brilliant but the person who stood out to me the most was Jena Malone, she was both sexy and mysterious and this is definitely a career highlight. 'The Neon Demon' will be a classic in the future and is simply fantastic.
