Drive - N Winding Refn (2011)

Here is another film I was intelligent enough not to watch at a movie theater, but on my little home TV set. Much too violent to my taste, but also dreamlike in a spellbinding sort of way.

The story is familiar (with a not so discreet touch of Shakespearean tragedy to it) and Gosling takes the concept of the strong, silent and handsome hero to a whole new dimension.
Yet, the staging is remarkable, largely due to the contrasts between music and silence, speed and slow motion.
