Drive

Big surprise, I know. No one else (especially no one else on this website) has called Nicholas Winding Refn’s “Drive” the best movie of the year or anything. I like to take risks. A friend described “Drive” the classiest B-movie ever made, and he’s absolutely right. Equal parts 70s tough guy flick, modern pseudo-western, and chase movie, “Drive” is moody, tense, and brooding just to the point where you’re about to lose it, then, out of nowhere, it comes at you with shocking bursts of graphic violence. Ryan Gosling had a big year, and “Drive” is the highpoint.
