Movie Review: Drive (2011) Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn

Drive is by far the best movie I have seen in the cinema, in this last year. Ryan Gosling blew me away with his majestic way of converting himself into his own monster of a character; quite ironic because he can also portray a sweet man just wanting a simple life in his hell. The style of the film is unique and precise. The director knew exactly what he wanted to portray, using neon lights as the soul of the classic L.A atmosphere for example. I’m not going to explain the plot of the movie, because I would like for you to just go watch it and understand how perfect it is. Drive is simple, and it’s main character is the coolest character that has ever graced in the modern day screen. I actually left the cinema feeling like like a different person; most modern movies are lacking this. I’d describe the film almost as a fairytale of some kind, extremely poetic and outstanding; it has this intensity about it that will linger with you for weeks.
