Drive - The Driver

Meet The Driver.

Drive is one of those movies that just oozes coolness, sexuality, and intensity through the screen for it's entire runtime. Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn commits to screen the simple story of a stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver in the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles. His skills with a car are unmatched, he fears no one, and is an all around keep-to-himself loner, until one day... When the Driver meets his pretty neighbor and her young son he is instantly drawn to them. When her husband, a small time criminal, is released from jail things start to go from bad to worse. Getting in deep with a mobster the Driver must now not only fight to keep himself above ground, but the lives of his neighbor and her son as well. The Driver with his signature scorpion jacket, slicked hair, and hammer (used to great effect against villains!) is an anti-hero right our of grindhouse cinema of the 1970s. Drive, with its pulse pounding soundtrack, perfect visuals, and amazing chase sequences are enough to put this movie towards the top of my favorite films of all time list.
