Drive ★★★★½

Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive will remain one of the coolest films around for the foreseeable future. Almost six years after it's release, Ryan Gosling's nameless driver's appeal hasn't diminished in the slightest, and Drive has attained that cult status quicker than most. An arthouse film that crossed over, it helped cement Gosling as the genuine article that could flit between generic studio fair and cool indie flicks with effortless aplomb. Still compelling, still unnerving, still visually arresting, and that stylized violence reminds us of Tarantino's influence on modern day filmmakers, Refn may have missed the odd step since, but has offered enough to suggest he might just be something special.
