Finally got round to watching Drive the other night. It was the third time I’d tried and I usually only give films a couple of chances but I had a feeling that I’d really like it if I was in the right frame of mind.
As it turns out I was right, I loved it (I think). While there’s not a great deal happening, and to be honest a film about a stunt/getaway/racecar driver really needed more car chases overall it was well worth a watch.
As a bonus I though the soundtrack/score really helped the movie, and I’ve been listening to it while reading/sketching and it’s great background tuneage. Definitely going to check out what other stuff Cliff Martinez has done.
All in all, if you’re in the right frame of mind it’s a great film. You could say there’s more style than substance, but when the style is this good it can be forgiven.
