Nicolas Winding Refn (born 29 September 1970) is a Danish film director, screenwriter and producer. He is known for directing the Pusher films, Drive and Only God Forgives.

Winding Refn prefers to shoot his films in chronological order: “…after I did it on my first movie, I felt, ‘How can you do a movie any other way?’ It’s like a painting — you paint the movie as you go along, and I like the uncertainty of not knowing exactly how it’s going to turn out.”

Colour blindness influences his style: “I can’t see mid-colours. That’s why all my films are very contrasted, if it were anything else I couldn’t see it.”
