IV. DRIVE

 

tumblr_mnfohezqps1snrnaoo1_500The film Drive (dir. Nicolas Winding Refn) is inspiring to me in it’s portrayal of a getaway driver, played by Ryan Gosling, who is striving for an escape from the life he pursues. The film illustrates his journey to becoming the better person he wants to be through beautiful visual storytelling and one of my favorite performances by Gosling. Gosling portrays the internal conflict of his character with minimal dialogue, giving a rather subtle performance at first, which turns explosive by the end. Drive is gorgeously shot and directed, but what I love most about it is its examination of a man who strives to better himself despite the life he has pursued.
