Supercontext: The Neon Demon

Thank you to our Co-Producer patron Miriam Meaney for selecting this week’s topic!

This 2016 film by Nicolas Winding Refn is about beauty, jealousy and the entertainment industry. We look at Refn’s thematic intentions and the myriad of arguments about his “misogyny” or “feminism,” to try to understand how the glamour industry portrays women.
