Drive #4: "What do you do?" "I drive."



Synopsis
Driver is a stunt driver by day and a getaway driver by night. Doesn’t matter what job he does, Driver is most comfortable behind the wheel of a car. Shannon is part mentor, part manager for Driver. Since he knows what a great talent Driver is behind the wheel, he either peddles him to film and television directors in the entertainment business or thieves who need an accomplished getaway driver, taking a cut for his own pockets.

Always looking to make a buck, Shannon’s current plan is funding a stock car that Driver can race on the professional circuit. Since Bernie Rose is the wealthiest guy he knows, even if the sources of his money are questionable, Shannon proposes he be their investor. After seeing Driver in action at the speedway, Bernie Rose insists Nino partners with them as well. Primarily a loner and ambivalent about the deals Shannon makes for him, Driver’s world changes the day he shares an elevator ride at his apartment building with Irene.

When he sees her again at the grocery store with her young son, Benicio, he is transfixed, and willingly offers help when they are stranded in the parking lot because Irene’s car won’t start. Soon Driver settles into a routine of driving Irene to her waitress job and watching Benicio, entangled in their lives while her car is fixed. This interlude in Driver’s life abruptly stops when Standard, Irene’s husband, is let out early from prison for good behavior. Even though nothing has happened between Driver and Irene, Standard is threatened by another man’s presence in his family’s life. Driver backs off, respectful of Irene’s desire to keep her family together, but when he finds Standard bloodied and lying in the garage with a scared Benicio standing next to his father, Driver is embroiled even further in Irene’s life.

Then trouble begins...

What They're Saying...
"... Part love story, part black comedy, and part crime thriller, 'Drive' is a film-lover's dream." - Cole Smithey

"... Precisely paced, but with plenty of fantastic action set-pieces, Drive is too much fun. Seriously, it’s COOL." - Simon Miraudo.

"... Gosling is marvelous to watch on screen. He's charming, tough, and smart." - Chase Whale

"... A film you will want to watch over and over again." - Brad Brevet

"... Ryan Gosling's Drive is outrageous, brutal, tender and kind of brilliant." - Digital Spy Movies

"... Gosling does a Steve McQueen cooler-than-cool star turn." - Pete Hammond

"... An exploitation/modern Western mix with brilliantly over-the-top sequences and gleeful abandon in its spirit. Long may Winding Refn rule." - Simon Gallagher

"... One of the few films I could potentially call flawless." - Alex Billington

"... In a bravura performance, Gosling reveals himself as an über-cool action hero reminiscent of the Steve McQueen or the young Clint Eastwood." - Brian D. Johnson

"... Drive is a brutal, tender and outrageous genre mash-up." - Simon Reynolds

"... [Drive] manages to hit that cinematic sweet spot of critic-approved artfulness and multiplex-approved genre exhilaration." - Aaron Hillis

"... Gosling and Mulligan in particular look like they were born to be in a two shot together." - Glenn Heath Jr

"... Drive is such a thrilling, taut, visually dazzling exercise in genre filmmaking that even its more gruesome scenes left us giddy." - Melissa Anderson

"... Between the gripping performances, the stunning lighting, the perfect soundtrack and the taut script, the sound is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the brilliance that is director Nicolas Winding Refn’s newest film." - Cinema Blend

"... Tense, bloody and absolutely astounding." - John C Clark

"... Drive both is and isn’t something familiar, weaving brutally realistic violence in with lyrical beauty, switching back and forth with rapid unexpectedness." - Jandy Stone

"... A thrilling modern neo-noir at its best, it is dangerous, taut and tantalizing. DRIVE fires on all cylinders and is quite the adrenaline rush." - Courtney Howard

Well, I guess it's the famous scene in the elevator The scene doesn't end that well, though.

Face?

They were sweet moments indeed .. I found it so awesome that Ryan's character felt that responsible for Irene and Benicio and was willing to even risk his own life by getting involved.

Especially Nightcall was stuck in my head. It's the song from the intro.
