“Drive” is an elegant thriller directed by Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn. In it, Gosling goes from contemplation to fury and then to a state of tenderness with just a blink, because precisely his acting intensity lies in his ability to express with his eyes what other actors can only do with dialogue. .
“Drive” is a film-noir but with a saturation of colors and textures that make it delicately rough. The attention to detail stands out, because unlike other films where by mistake the passengers of a vehicle are completely illuminated in a night scene, here the director gives us dark interiors with an occasional flash of light from the street.
Apparently, the actor seems not to follow the prescribed rules of Hollywood. For after a string of back-to-back movies, and after achieving mainstream heartthrob status, he went off with small independent projects.
