‘Too Old to Die Young’ Review: Miles Teller Embraces Slow Nihilism in Nicolas Winding Refn Series

‘Too Old to Die Young’ Review: Miles Teller Embraces Slow Nihilism in Nicolas Winding Refn Series
The genre of violence for its own sake has been deeply explored in American cinema over the past 50 years, and adopted for better or worse by the most stylish of filmmakers who have followed in the footsteps of Martin Scorsese, David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino.

But at this stage, it’s fair to ask what is the point when a talented filmmaker like Nicolas Winding Refn delivers an indulgent dive into nihilistic violence in “Too Old to Die Young,” an Amazon 10-part TV series whose first two episodes screened out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend?

What are we discovering here? Miles Teller plays Martin, a cop turned contract killer with a suitably chiseled profile but no discernible motivation for blithely shooting random people from the criminal underworld for pay.
