Review: Drive (2011)

Brilliant performances by Gosling & Mulligan

Judging by the other reviews this film is highly divisive - you'll either love it or hate it, and if you go in expecting a high-octane Jason-Statham-esque action flick, you'll probably fall into the latter camp. Drive is definitely an arthouse movie, and the performances by Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan are masterful. Both actors are able to speak volumes by their actions and expressions without relying on dialogue, something missing in most modern Hollywood flicks. The action sequences, when it happens, are riveting, and the graphic violence will make you squirm in your seat, but all adds to the atmosphere of the story. And the open-ish ending is perfect as well.
