    Nicholas Winding Refm¿s films are mostly crime dramas characteri

    Nicholas Winding Refm’s films are mostly crime dramas characterized by violent, aggressive action scenes and sharp contrasts in lighting and color. Drive does not fall far from his signature style. The style of drive is a cool, bright, and polished 80s themed atmosphere combined with a dreamlike and surreal aura. It’s hard to find an area of the film that doesn’t contribute to the overall polished and otherworldly ambience of the film. There are moments in drive that contain extremely graphic violence, which is even more emphasized by its tranclike and tension-building plot development. Ryan Gosling shines in this film; his portrayal of the Driver carries the ambience of the film and sets the tone for the storyline as the plot develops. Overall, Drive is one of the most interesting and beautifully crafted films to hit the big sceen in quite a while.

    Ultra cool and over the top violent but very, very romantic!

    I was shocked by some of the intense violence in this movie. Even more shocked that I loved the film. From the very first moments of the movie, Gosling was intense and impossible to take your eyes off. The relationship between Gosling's Driver and Carey Mulligan's Irene is so sweet, and romantic. The scene where they drive the LA River basin with A Real Hero by College is one of the highlights of the movie. Goslings grin makes you smile and smile. And he's pretty good with a hammer too.
    A powerful film from Nicholas Winding Refn which should have been one of the Academy Award nominees for Best Film of 2011.
