'The Bling Ring' is brimming with pointed dialogue and impressive performances. Paris Hilton even cameos, gleefully poking fun at her dense public persona. Meanwhile, Watson, with an intentionally moronic valley girl accent in tow, remains magical. 13 7 Red 2 August 2nd Only god forgives August 2nd Nicholas Winding Refn's followup to 'Drive' sees drug-smuggler Ryan Gosling on a mission to avenge his brother's death, at the behest of his fearsome mother (Kristin Scott Thomas).
