B and I watched Drive over the weekend
and I must say it was one of the best
films I've seen in a long, long time.
Terrifically written and directed, it's kind of an
'80s-inspired romantic thriller that's full of stoplights,
headlights, window glare, and Ryan Gosling deliciousness.
Carey Mulligan was great too - even if she only spoke at most
a dozen words throughout the entire movie. Actually, no one
really talks a lot but that's the beauty of the writing.
No one has to speak to convey what's actually going on.
It's a little violent - okay, it's A LOT violent - but
I couldn't turn away. I was completely wrapped
up from the beginning to the end, mainly due to
quiet, deathly still moments that linger for
just the right amount of time.
And then BAM!
You're left with your mouth hanging open,
thinking did that really just happen?
Also, the soundtrack is exceptional.
While it can't stand on it's own, there is one super
cool track that I have been slightly obsessed with for days now.
