absolutely! it's in my top 10 for the year as well

I must say tho - I watched Meek's Cutoff recently (I think you had that in yours) and wasn't too impressed. Some of the backdrops were gorgeous, and the set choices in general were great. Many of the scenes were really well crafted, but I simply saw it as being a 'good' movie that I'd probably recommend to a friend but not bother returning to for some time and only if something reminds me of it.

The other day I watched The Guard and reallllly enjoyed it as well. After the first twenty minutes I was thinking "holy fuck is this a martin mcdonagh work that I'm somehow unfamiliar with???" and then learned it was his brother. Awesome! Four or five years ago I read a piece in The New Yorker about Mcdonahgh's plays and was intrigued so I bought the two books of his work that I could find. Then, out of nowhere to me, a few years later In Bruges came out. And it was good. Guard wasn't quite as good, or as quick-witted, but it had some real gems and I loved how it was structured.

I'm itching to see Drive. Gosling has proven to be so much more awesome of an actor than I ever gave him credit for

for the movie Drive, Gosling was good, but you would probably be more impressed with Albert Brooks. Bryan Cranston("Breaking Bad") was good, but Brooks stole the show for me, especially the final 40 minutes of the movie.

I was fortunate enough to watch Meek's Cutoff in the theater the proper way. I have read some reviews of it where some theaters did not show movie the way it was supposed to be intended as an old early 19th century western film with the orangish-yellowish texture, and the visible frame (can't think of the term of it at the moment, and the type of projector). I did see the film in that fashion, which is one of the reasons why i loved it. Your reasons also sold me, but the big one that got me hyped about the movie was the ending. a great way to end the movie. some may disagree, but it is a perfect depiction of the old travelers of the West who didn't know where they were going, and had to trust strangers for guidance.

Maybe that would've made the difference for me. I watched it on my laptop... I really did like the ending. Upon hearing "...we're all following him" I let out an "oh man!" and gave a bigg smile as the camera panned and the scope widened.

I wanna see Ron Perlman in Drive haha! He's such a guilty pleasure of mine! And i'm not talking Hell Boy - I'm talking bout The Mutant Chronicles and shit like that, and, of course, The City of Lost Children. He's a fun actor.

Drive is awesome, seen it twice already.

The whole opening scene and the subsequent car chase is a masterpiece of visual storytelling.

Plus the soundtrack... oh, the soundtrack.

+1

I bought the soundtrack just now.

One thing some of the scenes... you can hear the theatre say "holy shit". In all honesty, this has been the best movie I have seen this year. The arguments people are having on FB and IMDB about this movie is quite idiotic.

Drive was good, I enjoyed it. Ryan Gosling was excellent (as usual). My one major complaint was their serious overuse of dramatic pauses. Sounds picky, I know, but by the fifth time of just sitting there waiting, it just felt like the director was screaming "GET IT? DO YOU FEEL WHAT THEY'RE FEELING HERE? DO YOU FEEEEL IT?!?!".

The last one was the worst. I literally said "oh come on" out loud.


Still a darned good flick, and I recommend others to see it.

The pauses aren't there to give you more information on what's going on, they are a part of the overall melancholic feeling of the film where you linger on these moments to give them more weight.

This is why Drive is different from Faster and other similar car chasing crime flicks. Refn chose to keep a straightforward narration, but then took this mysterious archetypal figure of Driver and adjusted the tempo of the film to his personality. So just like the Driver is mostly silent, boyish-looking, but deep down capable of brutal violence, the movie has little dialogue, slow pace and is both sentimental and violent.

Watched 2 movies in the last week.

Enter the Void

This movie was mind blowing! I felt as high as the people in the movie while watching it.

Tree Of Life

Absolutely boring as hell. Maybe this movie made sense in the directors mind but it makes no sense on the screen. I was really looking forward to watching it

Yeah, I get that. I liked the character overall, I just thought the pauses were way overdone.

Also, I think people should know before going that it is rather graphically violent at times.
