out today: drive on blu-ray

upon second and third viewing, drive was my favorite movie of 2011 in front of midnight in paris and 50/50.  it’s a damn shame the academy didn’t give it any love when they announced the oscar nominations last week.  one film blogger said it was too much of a homage film to stand out amongst the other nominees.  huh?  i’m no film expert, but isn’t the artist a homage to silent movies?  moving right along…drive is out today on blu-ray.  if you haven’t seen it, you’re in for a real treat.  i’m not going to give anything away, but the movie is not what you expect.  ryan gosling is perfectly cast as the no-named driver.  dude is a total badass.  if you’re interested in learning more about the style in drive, see my previous post here.  great flick.

quick word about drive

i recently saw drive.  it’s easily one of the best films of the year.  a couple of things worth noting: 1) the soundtrack is incredible – sets the mood of the film perfectly.  2) the scorpion jacket ryan gosling wears in the film is custom made and inspired by korean souvenir jackets from the 1950s.  3) the boots are a cap toe boot made by stacy adams.  4) the jean jacket is vintage levi’s.  5) his watch is a replica of a patek phillippe and currently not for sale.  5) the bag he uses in the film is a large filson duffle.  6) sunglasses are selima optique.
