"Drive" is one the most beautiful shot movies. The cinematography is amazing and without a doubt stunning. This is the only reason why I gave it five stars. Ryan Gosling's acting can seem awkward at times. Albert Brooks and Bryan Cranston were amazing in this movie. The music is good, but too on-the-nose. This movie is the best music video, and that is not necessarily a bad thing.
Drive is the best film I've seen in a long time. I'm sorry I missed it in theaters. It's a great mix of film noir with just enough action and a dash of the classic western. Ryan Gosling is, as usual, brilliant, giving his nameless character subtle but distinct emotions. The director, Nicolas Winding Refn, is new to Hollywood but I will be checking out his previous and future films.
This is easily one of the best films I have ever seen. It's been a long time since a film made me feel as much as this one did. The only thing I didn't quite like was how they made song lyrics match up too well to what was going on in the film, things like that often ruin my immersion.
Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can't help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac).
i´ve seen it its so good. it has a somewhat feel like Fightclub. Dont get me wrong, Fightclub still is in a different league, but its just the overall look and feeling I got from this great movie
and on top it has Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks, Ron Pearlman, Ryan Goßling and a major, freakin fantastic soundtrack with an 80´s feel
The director has said he wanted to make a combination of a John Hughes movie and Taxi Driver. I saw this with 6 buddies. 4 loved it. 2 hated it. The 70s movie vibe is strong. The pacing is slow. Atmospherics > Plot. Ryan Gosling is a badass. Who knew Albert Brooks could be so menacing?
Drive isn't the cheesy car chasing, gun-slinging action packed movie that it might seem to look like on the surface. The movie delivered cool, smooth, and sexy all in perfect moderation. Ryan Gosling was a complete bad-ass in this movie and the storyline was amazing. From the cinematography to the soundtrack, this movie is worth the money.
Not much dialog but the little said more than hundred lines of Tarantino's preaches. Camera work, music and the actors all play well together. My favorite movie of the year, possibly even years to come. Maybe this is what Lynch could do if he had evolved to a movie director.
I agree with you but I don't see why you have to knock down other filmmakers to exemplify one movie.
I think I can hardly knock down an icon such as Tarantino or Lynch which is why I chose to compare Drive to their works. After all, what I though was more enjoyable in Drive is why we hold the aforementioned in such high regard.

A very good cast. Great slow/dark/tense atmosphere. Nice music. Good photography. Slightly gore. Go see it!
