Drive: An Illustrated Response | The Hairpin
Good read.• Aw man, Christina Hendricks is only in this movie for like two seconds! "How you gonna ﬁt all them titties into two seconds?" is what the weird ******* part of my brain just thought.
She wanted to shout her stupidity from the rooftops. Message received dumdum.
I hope it costs her a lot of money.
Adgy...how could you be thrown by the music? You HAVE seen Michael Mann flicks in your past haven't you? Good lord, Refn must have been unable to procure the services of Tangerine Dream. See THIEF or TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA. This was an open love letter to Michael Mann '80s synth driven flicks. Ok...that being said, it's clear that Refn being, what is it? Danish, something was lost in translation. Too many smirks wrapped around awkward silences WITHOUT Mann's trademark character development(Kingsqueen, who knows not of Mann's 80's flicks was one silent smirk away from tossing a shoe). I just did not care. And Gosling was so mono-sylabic that it was almost RAIN MAN meets TAXI DRIVER. Man, this started so well too, and had flares of brilliance...the initial chase sequence, Albert Brooks' almost penitent dispatch of Bryan Cranston's character. So much to love, and yet, I have seen this done SO MUCH BETTER.
