Drive ★★★★★

"See you in five minutes."

"See you in four."

A pop-art romance piece come to life through cinema. Every image commands a theme, an atmosphere, a presence. Los Angeles becomes a neon bathed fairy tale world of princesses, knights in shining armor, wicked servants, and fire breathing dragons. Synth-pop becomes a window to witness the resurrection of ones soul through love. The lights of cars and street lamps illuminate our characters faces and their expressions, hands intertwining with another, weaving and dissipating and flickering, showing us only glimpses of those fleeting but perfect and sometimes tragic moments. Drive is only an hour and a half, but how I wished it lasted a lifetime.
