Drive-in Movie

The best actor of his generation

Drive starts with probably the best getaway/chase scene ever depicted on film. It’s good because it’s intelligent — a chase sequence you feel could really happen, not cars flipping and exploding left and right.  The driver is a quiet, confident, intelligent Ryan Gosling — a seething intensity worked by the best actor of his generation.  Drive is a prime example of how Gosling can hold a frame; how he compels you to keep watching.

As great as Gosling is, Drive also has a terrific storyline.  Early on I remember thinking, this guy (Gosling’s character) has really got a lot of irons in the fire.  It progresses in very strong fashion for a large portion of the picture before the plot runs into a little pat territory that doesn’t quite live up to the rest of the picture, but Drive is good enough to stand as an intriguing and compelling, and even great film.
