Just saw this.  Don't believe the reviews which are pretty harsh.  It's great.  I don't think "NWR" is taking himself seriously at all.  I think the tone, style and everything is exactly supposed to mirror the "over the top" nature of the content itself which is like Showgirls but for models.  So looked at from that point of view, it's awesome.  As much fun as Starry Eyes.  Check it out.  Its fun to see a slower moving horror.  Not too many people doing it lately.  Under the Skin was great and much more subtle but it was more straightforward.  Neon Demon is definitely campy .

I really enjoyed it, a return to form for him that I think can sit (much more happily) alongside Driver/Bronson than the painfully unengaging Only God Forgives.
