Drive ★★★★★

"My hands are a little dirty"
"So are mine"

Ok. I think I just fell in love with this movie! I adore Drive. It is practically a masterpiece. The direction is flat out incredible! Every detail is important to the story or characters. Speaking of characters, the character of 'Driver' played by Ryan Gosling is so great. I said this about Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver yesterday but you could honestly write an essay on this character. He's very, very subtle and a lot of what makes him such an incredible character is easy to look over.
This is not like Baby Driver at all. The basic plot is quite similar but that's about it. This is first and foremost an art house film. It's very artsy but at no point does it ever come across as pretentious.
I'm struggling to find a single complaint with it. I guess there was a scene in a strip club or something like that and there were a few too many shots with nudity in them for my personal taste. That's about all I have to nitpick with.
I just want to watch it again. I was never bored for a second and it went by so fast. I think it's one of the best movies of the decade.
