I’ve seen the movie a couple of times already, and it’s really quite beautiful. The cinematography is amazing, as Gosling said, Refn fetichizes the frame. Each shot is unique and has something to say. The music is brilliant, and the film is bloody as fuck. I haven’t been this overwhelmed by violence in a movie in a long time, and i mean that in the best way possible. When a gunshot is fired in Drive, you almost get a fucking heart attack, it’s so loud and bloody.
It’s incredibly stylized and many of my friends have described it as lacking substance, but I think it’s a great fucking film and will def. end up in my top 5 of the year.
And of course, it’s quite Tarantino-ish.
