Still… here are a few choice examples from a pretty strong opening episode. People adverse to a liberal use of the f-word should probably look away now:

Auteur Theories: Nicolas Winding Refn is an in-depth study on the filmmaking style, themes, process, and life of the intriguing Nicolas Winding Refn. Since Drive, Refn has received well-deserved international acclaim. This is because the world has finally caught on, acknowledging the talents of the Pusher film director.
The two-part Auteur Theories examination on Refn begins with a concise summary of the filmmaker’s approach to cinema. Refn’s films tell stories about the lives of misfits, gangsters, and obsessives, with honesty, human insight, and sympathy. For Refn, filmmaking should be an organic process. He avoids storyboards and insists on shooting his films in chronological order. This allows the filmmaking process to become the means of discovering the film itself and helps his actors establish and maintain a consistent emotional thrust for their characters. His films are always rooted in the traditions of the gritty and violent genre cinema he grew up on but always stubbornly refused to obey genre conventions—a fusion of classic, hard-edged genre archetypes with what he calls his feminine European sensibility. Precisely.
Auteur Theories proceeds to dig further into the history of this filmmaker, revealing footage of Refn’s first work, a short film titled Pusher and featuring himself as a criminal in the Danish underworld. This DIY filmwork caught the attention of producers who wanted to fund a feature-length version of the film. From this DIY filmmaker arose the director we now see.
Nicolas Winding Refn has become a great source of inspiration for filmmakers. From denying his acceptance to film school in order to successfully direct his first feature film in his 20s, to hitting rock-bottom, bankruptcy mid-way through his career, and finally, climbing back to the top with acclaim and achievements, one can learn much from Refn’s life. Determination and patience are two qualities that are essential for every filmmaker. Most importantly, knowing yourself and thus understanding your artistic voice will never lead you astray.
