Here’s a unique look into the twisted, violent world of director Nicolas Winding Refn as he films Only God Forgives with Ryan Gosling.

The stylistically violent film, the second collaboration between Gosling and Winding Refn (the first was 2011’s Drive), was centered around the brutal Bangkok criminal underworld.

Actor Vithaya Pansringarm, playing a police chief willing to dispense cruel justice with a samurai blade, had some bizarre conversations with the director and his special effects crew.

In this exclusive extra from the DVD/Blu-Ray release (out Tuesday), Winding Refn gives out some of the stranger film direction you will hear on the proper way to sever a limb.

As one film crew member promises, “There will be blood.” And he is correct. The director is pleased.
