    RESPONSIBILITIES AND EMPATHY

    A simple story that shows how children see the world and how the world sees them.

    Refn's films often are criticized for being style over substance and poorly written. In this case, the director's weaknesses come out as strengths. In the case for the visuals, The Neon Demon argues that "beauty is everything" and Jesse even says that…
