I've watched it, it's a good movie. I think it's a bit overrated though.

that there was barely any dialouge between the two main characters. that there were like 5 minute scenes of them just staring at each other.

also that the movie appears to be classy up until a certain scene in an apartment when someone's head gets blown open like a watermelon and they show that entire gore scene.

Sorry I found that incredibly amusing. They didn't get the film at all imo. Expressions and feelings are conveyed through a beautiful visual format rather than dialogue. It is a film that thrives on its superb visuals, not to mention that the main character is very stoic so naturally he doesn't talk much.

Also that violence is heavily stylized and goes perfectly with the film. It doesn't back down when it is trying to portray brutality.

It's just that's the whole point of the film. Stylish visuals (including violence) instead of a lengthy talkative film. Even though you have characters just staring at each other for a while it's not like it's boring or anything. You can tell what they are experiencing and thinking through their expressions and body language and eye movement. That tells the story in its own unique way.

Drive is an amazing film. Ryan Gosling's portrayal of the socially awkward loner is just too good; I love him as an actor. And I'll echo Z's words in saying that the violence is done in a classy way. Everything about this film is amazing and the soundtrack in this movie is one of the only times I've gone on the internet right away to listen to songs from it. People need to watch this film.

Really good movie. Wondering if Gosling has that much range though, hasn't shown much so far in his movies

I thought it was pretty shitty. The whole film was just running on the acting ability of its actors, very 1 dimensional if you ask me.

You're dumb.

The direction was way more dominant than any acting in this film.
