Drive without a driver: interview with Nicholas Winding Refn documentary
Drive A lone-wolf Hollywood stunt driver (Ryan Gosling) moonlights as a freelance getaway wheelman, and he finds his solitary existence taking on new meaning after befriending Irene (Carey Mulligan), the lonely wife of convicted felon Standard (Oscar Isaac), and her young son Benicio (Kaden Leos). When Standard gets released from prison and is strong-armed into committing a bold daytime robbery, the Driver offers his services in an effort to help the repentant ex-con cut his ties to the criminal underworld. Things get complicated, however, when the robbery goes unexpectedly awry, and the Driver just barely manages to escape alive. When the take from the job proves to be stratospherically higher than the Driver was led to believe, it quickly becomes apparent that they were set up. Later, thugs threaten to kill Irene and Benicio, and all evidence points to transplanted New York crime boss Bernie Rose (Albert Brooks) and his hot-headed partner Nino (Ron Perlman) as the masterminds. As the Driver attempts to turn the tables on them, it becomes clear that the chain of command goes much higher than he could have ever anticipated. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
DRIVE was the best picture of 2011
Posted by: AreaMang from: on
DRIVE is not just about "driving cars" - in fact, the title of the movie has a lot more to do with character motivations than motor vehicles. People who are expecting THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS need not apply.
In a way, DRIVE reminds me of A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE. A great slow burn film featuring interesting and complicated characters that climaxes in some violent shots of such intensity that you would probably close your eyes if it weren't for the fact that the film has already cut away by the time your brain has processed what it is seeing. While intense and sometimes unexpected, the violence is not excessive or unnecessary.
The soundtrack is also amazing. Cliff Martinez does an outstanding job handling the orchestral side, while Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx, Desire, College and the Chromatics supply the retro '80s sound. I immediately bought the soundtrack after watching DRIVE in theaters and it has gotten a lot of play.
I think DRIVE was easily the best film of 2011. It's a shame that it was snubbed by the Golden Globes and the Oscars. Albert Brooks absolutely deserved a Best Supporting nom for his wickedly evil portrayal of Bernie Rose. Gosling, as always, delivers 110%.
If you skip DRIVE you're doing yourself a disservice.

Best Picture Nom Snub!
Posted by: chaser2323 from: PHX AZ on
This movie will take you on a wild and alarming ride into the mind of a gentle man who reaches his breaking point when his emotions interfere with his "job" as a get away driver. Ryan Gosling deserved a best actor nomination for this portrayal of a silent hero. Mel brooks delivers as a bad guy who I also feel should have been nominated. Great cast, great score, great plot, great movie. My favorite picture of the year, and I've seen all 10 nominated for best picture.

People who are complaining about lack of "driving" please go pick up one of the many Fast and Furious films. If you want a film with some depth and substance then Drive is your movie.

The Substance of Style
Posted by: HappyDog44 from: So Cal on
This is a movie for film buffs, not for car lovers. As you've probably noticed, the bad reviews come from car lovers who were hoping for a car chase movie. This isn't that movie.
This is a movie about characters; people who draw you in and who you want to know more about.
It's also a movie about the art of film making and how style can deliver substance. The director, Nicolas Winding Refn, brings a vision to this movie that is both fresh and yet familiar. Film noir meets street style.
This is also an actors movie. The sparse dialog means they bring their characters to us through the play of emotions on their faces as much as through their words. Carey Mulligan and Ryan Gosling have a great chemistry and they really don't need to say anything because you can see what they're feeling.
I also have to say that the "extras" that come with this edition are among the best I've ever seen. The interview with Nicolas Winding Refn is really great and the fact is, I've watched the extras more times than the movie.
If you're a film buff, you will want to own this movie.

best movie of 2011
Posted by: Riseoftherobots017 from: on
This was my favorite movie from 2011. Can't believe that it got snubbed by the academy. The cinematography was amazing and the story line was great. If your looking for a mindless car chase movie like the fast and the furious then this movie is not for you, but if you want a movie with some quality and thought then this is a must see.

Precision driving can mean the difference between a long prison sentence and a clean getaway. For the right price and with the right connection, those are services you can obtain once and only once and Ryan Gosling provides them.
Starring as a character that is never given a name, Gosling works as a mechanic for Shannon (played by Bryan Cranston) who also allows him to use vehicles brought to his garage for servicing for his illicit activities. In addition, he does the occasional bit of stunt driving for Hollywood films. Not to mention the fact that Shannon’s (Cranston’s) associate Bernie Rose (played way against type by Albert Brooks) is considering a proposal Shannon made to have Driver race professionally with Bernie (Brooks) as their benefactor. Things appear to be going swimmingly until Driver offers assistance to a neighbor being coerced to perform a robbery. The neighbor, Standard (played by Oscar Isaac), was recently released from prison and fears what his associate will do to his family. A family that Driver became quite close to in the time between when he met them and the day Standard was released.
The violence is a little gruesome, and the surreal nature of a character with no name is something that didn’t actually strike me until after I left the theater. That said, the story is interesting, the performances spectacular and the general feel of the film is right on target. It is light-years ahead of films like The Transporter that seek to turn their characters into superheroes.

Powerful, high caliber acting, and memorable
Posted by: drknght from: Memphis, TN on
How Ryan Gosling did not get nominated for an Oscar for this film is beyond me. Nevertheless, the movie is outstanding. The picture is incredible and the eighties synth-pop soundtrack is amazing.

A Must Buy for Fans of the Film
Posted by: TheDingo from: on
As a fan of the film, i'd be difficult for me not to recommend this to other fans. The artwork is downright beautiful, especially when paired with the steelbook case. The Blu-Ray is the same that's been around for a while, packed with all of the features you're used to seeing. $14.99 may seem like a bit of a steep price, but if you love the movie and like being able to show your friends your beautiful limited edition films like I do, then it's well worth it.
