Loving the Movie Drive

I really loved the movie Drive. I don’t know why I avoided it so long. It has a bit of a reputation for being rather violent and well, I guess I just wasn’t much in the mood for that kind of movie when it was in theatres. BUT I hope I can apologize to all those associated with the movie with my zeal in saying that I love “Drive.” It could possibly be my favorite movie of the last 5 years.

Nevertheless “Drive” follows a certain dialog-minimal approach to performance which I respect artistically but which made BuzzFeed made good sport of in this comic.

And, simply because it captured the essence of the movie so well, here is the gorgeous opening musical, Kavinsky’s “Nightcall.”
