Rewatched Mar 30, 2012
Charlotte Gregory’s review:
Slightly predictable plot? Style over substance? Possibly, but when the style is this damn cool, who cares? Ryan Gosling is the Driver, a man with few words and a hot temper, navigating his way through the LA criminal underworld in a part arthouse, part exploitation thriller. With an achingly hip electro 80's tinged soundtrack and masterful direction, it's a travesty that this wasn't even nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
