Excerpt: Driver: I'll see you in five minutes. Standard: I'll see you in four. This one was standing in line already for a long time to be watched. Looking at the number of responses on IMDB, my expectations about it went sky high.
Summary: This film is about a stuntman-turned-wheelman must use all his skills to survive after a botched job results in a contract on his head. This movie has a amazing soundtrack and the directing in this movie was just brilliant.
Excerpt: I love how implicit Drive was. What other films could not do for me with implicitness, this movie did perfectly. See, it took me a while to start liking this movie and several viewings, but by the third, I loved it.
Excerpt: If at any point you wanted to put put Drive on pause, you would be presented with something suitable for framing as a poster on the wall. Every shot in this movie is immaculately conceived and presented.

Its complexity is only in its photography...driving at night, diving helicopters and cop cars in pursuit of our driver.
Excerpt: A stunt driver and part time wheel man decides to help his neighbour's ex-con husband perform a robbery to clear a debt incurred whilst in prison to protect his family. Drive has a very self-consciously retro feel to it and despite the very 80s styling it has far more in common with the hard boiled...
