“If I drive for you, you get your money.
You tell me where we start, where we’re going, where we’re going afterwards. I give you five minutes when we get there. Anything happens in that five minutes and I’m yours. No matter what. Anything a minute on either side of that and you’re on your own. I don’t sit in while you’re running it down.
I don’t carry a gun.
In Nicholas Winding Refn‘s hyper-stylized and gloriously violent neo-noir action thriller DRIVE, Ryan Gosling stars as a mysterious loner whose day job has him working as a mechanic and movie stunt car driver while quietly moonlighting his talents on the other side of the law at night. After he unexpectedly falls in love with his single-mother neighbour (Carey Mulligan), he finds himself unwittingly sucked into the dangerously chaotic life of her ex (Oscar Isaac), an ex-convict whose shady underworld drama puts her and her young son in serious danger.
Refn‘s seamless and visionary blend of arthouse-inspired cinematography, a crazy-cool soundtrack and knockout performances from a seriously stellar cast caught people’s attention when it bowed at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011, winning him the award for Best Director and firmly establishing him as a filmmaker to watch. Also starring Bryan Cranston, Albert Brooks, Christina Hendricks, and Ron Perlman.
“This is pop art of the highest degree.” (Deadspin)
