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.
