Drive (2011)

Ryan Gosling in Drive

It’s not often you can sit in front of a screen for two hours and listen to about 1/2 the normal amount of dialogue in a film… and yet still be immensely captivated by the images and story portrayed. Drive, starring Ryan Gosling, presents a gripping yet simplistic tale about a lonely stunt man by day, get-away driver by night who befriends his beautiful neighbor (played by Carey Mulligan) and her son. At first, Drive begins with sweeping slow motion and brooding silence from Ryan’s character but then unravels into a dark, violent, and borderline exploitative film- in an incredibly gripping way. From beginning to end, the film takes over and brings you on a amazing journey.
