Sharp Tongue Review: "Drive"

Use of Non-Free Media

Two talented actors [Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan] who do not need long dialogues to convey their characters' thoughts and emotions, an astute director who is adept at timing, and a well-structured screenplay to anchor everything in place; all these to make “Drive” one of the best rides in theaters recently. With superb editing and eighties-style directing, director Nicolas Winding Refn gave us an intelligent person’s version of an action movie that is more character-driven than blood-driven.  None of the stellar cast budged; everyone seemed to be at their peak, most notably Albert Brooks

Nicolas Winding Refn won Best Director in the 2011 Cannes Film Festival
