Last night I finally saw Nicolas Winding Refn’s new film, Drive, and it was just as good as I had heard. Drive is THE coolest movie that will come out this year, and the cast is incredible. How good are they? I don’t tend to like Ryan Gosling and I LOVED him in this film, with his toothpick and his satin scorpion jacket. And Albert Brooks is just so goddamned amazing as a scary mob boss. Yes, scary.
Anyway, here’s the red band trailer. I think the second half sells the film better than the first, which is really working hard to set up the plot, which is actually fairly slight - but in the best, cool movie way.
