Drive is one of those movies that sticks with you for a while. One that revisits you in those quiet moments when you least expect it. Not because of the usual Hollywood tricks - car chase, sex scene and big happy ending (which it lacks),but because it genuinely has something to say. The maker of this film is the Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn, who has fast become one of the most prominent directors on my radar, only weeks ago coming to my attention for his 2009 self-proclaimed 'psychological sci-fi' Valhalla Rising, which left audiences stunned and confused for its strange narrative and unresolved plot. Both movies feature a strong male protagonist who is at the same time extremely inspective, yet vulnerable to his immediate surroundings. These two films are told in some of the most artful and unusual ways I've ever seen in film, due no doubt to the unique vision of Winding Refn. So without ruining anything about either of these superb cinematic pieces, I will simply leave you with this - go watch them!
