06.02.12Netflix Finally saw Drive. Liked it ok. Certain things, especially with the end, broke my suspension of disbelief just because they really did not make any sense at all. I get that the guy is aloof but come on. go to a hospital, dude. stabbing wounds to the abdomen are fixable. I think a lot of love for this movie comes from the music (the unapologetic synths are really strong and not just in a nostalgic 80s way) and the "cool" factor with the silver jacket and whatnot, but I think Gosling's character is too silent. his performance kind of bugged me actually.

Anyway, still a good movie just for the direction really. there's a weird kind of pacing to scenes that doesn't really behave like it should and that worked for me. Not as extreme as Bronson but definitely still in that vein. I just wished Gosling's behavior made more sense. I feel like they have to have this song yelling "REAL HERO, REAL HUMAN" at my face to get any kind of compassion toward him at all, when if he made a few different choices it could've come naturally. Maybe I just don't buy him as a tough guy like Charlie Bronson or Steve McQueen and that's why his silence bothered me. I just don't feel that he was natural. I guess, from the way these notes are going, that was my one major complaint about the movie. Everything else is pretty good.
