Drive (2011)

Image

Director: Nicolas Winding Refn

Writers: Hossein Amini (Based on a novel by James Sallis)

Haven’t watched this since the day it came out in the theatre.  I just hooked up a surround sound system and after testing it out with some scenes from Inception I put in Drive.  Really great audio mix and great music too so I was really pleased with the sound.

Was there a better looking and more stylish movie last year?  Goddamn this movie looks amazing.  I love that they had some balls and gave it a wide release as this definitely is the kind of movie I would’ve expected to get an art house platform release.  I love the pace and tone of this movie.  I hope that more people check it out over the years.  It just ooze “cool” in every scene.  If this came out in the 70s it would be a called a classic by now.  I am very excited for what Refn and Gosling are working on next.
