Director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive and Bronson) is bringing his hyper-violent vision to the small screen for “Too Old To Die Young,“ a 10-episode series for Amazon. Along with directing every episode, he also co-wrote the series alongside comic book legend Ed Brubaker.

The series will explore the criminal underworld of Los Angeles, including crooked cops, drug dealers and according to the official log line, a samurai? I’m assuming that’s metaphorical but when it comes to Refn, who the fuck knows.

The cast for the series includes William Baldwin, Miles Teller, John Hawkes, Jena Malone, Celestino Cornielle, Nell Tiger Free, Callie Hernandez, Kegn Matungulu and James Urbaniak.

“Too Old To Die Young” Is set to arrive on Amazon in 2019.

This is on Prime.

My friend started watching it.

This is Refn off the chain. It's good so far. There's plenty of neon-lit rooms and his signature style, but the pacing is hell.

Eps are 90 minutes long and they are slow as fuck. Characters literally stand around and deliver lines with the longest of pauses. Not sure why Refn has chosen to do this but it is challenging. His trademark violence is here but so is an unsettling dose of misogyny.

This is strictly for Refn diehards.

I'll give it a watch.  :woodenheart:

I've been binge watching since it's release. I will finish it today, only two episodes left. Not sure how I feel about it yet, but it is exactly what I expected from a Refn TV show for better or worse.  :)

Been watching less films and more television series. This is by far my favorite show this year.

I can't really describe it, its something you have to see for yourself. It covered all my senses.

Episodes can last 90 mins or an hour ten. Nothing in this series is the usual fare.

Rewatchable by far. I bet I missed a 100 amazing things.
