Review not finished. ---- Drive is a hypnotic watch, but its also quite a cold experience in some ways, and its hard to tell if its a commentary on American fascist cinema (with its grotesque depiction of violence), or a straight up Art house version of American fascist cinema (it makes you root for a psychopath.)
Plus the retro 80's (sounding) soundtrack is sure to alienate the hipsters who hate hipster stuff.
Potent. if i wasn't bothered by its romanticising of mob culture and its rose tinted celebration of the 'alpha male,' I would consider this brilliantly constructed, beautiful looking treasure as my favorite film, along with the sequel.
