Drive 18

Reporter: Cassam Looch

I'll confess straight away, of all the films out this year this is the one I have been most eager to see. 


The cool soundtrack, violent excesses and brooding presence of Ryan Gosling have been enough to sell the film to me. Thankfully, the film lives up to the hype. It's a brutal, stylish trip into a gritty world dominated by low-level crooks and one man who lives to drive. Gosling captures the quiet menace of the man behind the wheel, but not with big car chases rather with clever techniques of avoiding confrontation... That is until he is pushed too far obviously. Because once that happens, all hell breaks loose.  It's everything you could wish from a film like this to be, and there is no getting over how cool the experience is.
