Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive” takes a bit of liberty with the James Sallis book from which it is based, but I have to admit, I like it. Refn has crafted himself a fine, fine crime thriller here, with one of the coolest heroes to hit the screens in some time. The film opens this Friday, but to get you revved up (Get it? Cause it’s a movie about a getaway driver? Ahem.), here are eight whopping clips and two character featurettes for “Drive”.
“Drive” is the story of a Hollywood stunt driver by day (Gosling), a loner by nature, who moonlights as a top-notch getaway driver-for-hire in the criminal underworld. He finds himself a target for some of LA’s most dangerous men after agreeing to aid the husband of his beautiful neighbor, Irene (Mulligan). When the job goes dangerously awry, the only way he can keep Irene and her son alive is to do what he does best—Drive!
Starring Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Albert Brooks, Oscar Isaac, Ron Perlman, and Christina Hendricks.
