A lot of the buzz surrounding 's Only God Forgives, the follow up to his highly successful Drive, is based around the fact that he's working with again. But in these clips that just came out of Cannes, I can't look away from . I have a feeling she's going to the be the standout in this cryptic, lush film.

Watch the clips for Only God Forgives now:

Here's the synopsis for Only God Forgives:

Bangkok. Ten years ago Julian [played by Ryan Gosling] killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty.

When Julian's brother murders a prostitute the police call on retired cop Chang – the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter’s murderer, then 'restores order' by chopping off the man's right hand. Julian's mother Jenna [played by Oscar-nominee Kristin Scott Thomas] – the head of a powerful criminal organization – arrives in Bangkok to collect her son's body. She dispatches Julian to find his killers and 'raise hell'.

Increasingly obsessed with the Angel of Vengeance, Julian challenges him to a boxing match, hoping that by defeating him he might find spiritual release… but Chang triumphs. A furious Jenna plots revenge and the stage is set for a bloody journey through betrayal and vengeance towards a final confrontation and the possibility of redemption.
