My dad and I recently ran out of series to watch, which is troubling because that's pretty much all we do. Luckily, I had a few movies stashed away that I had dug out of various $5.00 bins at some point. The other night, we watched Drive. Now, I remember when this movie came out thinking "Meh, that might be decent." I was never excited to see it though; and even after I bought it, it sat around on my shelf for months. Well, I'm really glad I finally watched it because I honestly think it was one of the best movies I've ever seen. It was incredibly weird, to the point that I'm really not sure how they pulled it off. Everything about it was just odd. There was this whole eighties vibe to it, the music, the clothes, the general look of it, that didn't really go with the tone of the movie at all. Ryan Gosling's character (the main character) didn't have a name; I mean, I assume he did have a name but they never told us what it was. He was listed in the credits as "The Driver". He also had almost no lines. I think I may watch the movie again and count how many words he says throughout the whole thing. I've gained shit-ton of respect for him as an actor, because anyone who can mange to create a compelling character with nothing but facial expression has some serious talent. And no one else talked much either, there was less dialog than I have seen in any movie ever. Still, it all totally worked somehow. Basically what I'm saying is, it's a good movie and you should watch it (even though you probably already did, since it come out three years ago).
