Sending You A Nightcall

“There’s a hundred-thousand streets in this city. You don’t need to know the route. You give me a time and a place, I give you a five minute window. Anything happens in that five minutes and I’m yours. No matter what. Anything happens a minute either side of that and you’re on your own. Do you understand?”

If you don't understand, that means you still haven't seen Drive, which despite what your dumber friends have told you, is actually one of the best movies of the last few years. Its subtle, its mysterious, and its Ryan Gosling in all his gold glory kicking the bloody shit out of Mafioso gangsters  to some seriously badass 80's music. Yeah, its pretty sweet. He triumphs as a strangely skilled mechanic/stuntman/getaway driver while your heart fiercely pumps faster and faster to the pulsating beat of synthesized vocals and heavy electro drum and bass. Honestly, this movie makes Fast and the Furious look like Herbie The Love Bug. This is a moment-in-time kind of film, no exaggerated plot, no excess dialogue, just a collection of freaking brilliant nuances and amazing cinematography. I urge you to get familiar.
