Any dreams you have, or plans, or hopes for your future… I think you’re going to have to put that on hold. For the rest of your life you’re going to be looking over your shoulder. I’m just telling you this because I want you to know the truth. But the girl is safe.
I’m still trying to make up my opinion on Nicolas Winding Refn. I think the guy oozes style, but while I enjoyed the two films of his that I’ve seen — Bronson and Valhalla Rising — they also kind of left me cold. There’s a certain disconnect in his work, and I think it’s an intentional choice.
Drive looks like it might be following that same M.O., but it also looks like it could turn out to be cool as hell. And if early buzz on it is any indication, that’s exactly what it is.
