Drive: A Love Story Disguised In Gore

Refn’s Drive (2011) is a love story disguised in gore and action. The movie’s minimal dialogue and understated acting is reminiscent of Sofia Coppola’s Lost in TranslationRyan Gosling and Carey Mulligan‘s relationship, confusing but nevertheless, intriguing.

But other than the storyline and the Driver’s reserved smile, this movie’s soundtrack was perhaps, largely responsible for it’s success. The repetitive use of College’s “Real Hero” never got old and was perfect in establishing the Driver’s character. Complemented with Desire’s “Under Your Spell”, the film score had a very 80’s sound to it.

Here’s a glimpse of why this movie has quickly become a favorite.
