One of the best films I saw in 2011. The story line, the sound track, the acting... all perfect. Not one to watch if you're expecting The fast and the Furious, but if you want a cool, retro-feel, heartfelt movie it's definitely one to watch.
Drive was the best thing I saw in Cannes in 2011 and, in fact, the most powerful and memorable film I've seen for very very long time! Refn's directing style is impressively skillful and uncompromising, but its the raw power of Gosling's quiet performance that steals the show.
Not to be missed!!
As my title warns don't expect all action car carnage, because you'll come away very disappointed. Drive is a neon drenched thriller shot in the style of early Michael Mann or Tony Scott films. It even has a great 80's feel electro pop soundtrack that makes the whole film feel like it belongs in decades gone, where words were minimal and and it was a mans world.
The film starts with a very tense hide and seek game with the police as Ryan Goslin's character helps crooks escape the law by his exceptional driving skills and his cool head, but by day he is a stunt driver. The film then slows down to a crawl as characters build and back stories build, until the film gets back into gear with some breath taking drops of violence and car carnage.
I'm not going to beat around the bush as this filn will be loved as much as it's loathed, but I found this retro fitted no frills thriller a refreshing change to the GCI and cartoon action of other motorheaded films.
Drive has cult status written all over it.
