Mirror reflection scenes from 7 films by a Danish film director Nicolas Winding Refn have been compiled in one video. In his works Refn often puts emphasis on an internal struggle of his characters. To achieve this, he uses a mirror effect, depicting in such a manner a sort of splitting of the character’s mind.
Refn has used this effect in many of his films. As a proof of this, a video essayist Jacob T. Swinney has put together footage from seven Refn’s films, where the character reflection technique is heavily featured. The video takes us back to such films as Fear X, Bronson, Valhalla Rising, Drive, Only God Forgives and The Neon Demon.
