Drive

There are no clean getaways.


Drive
This well-decorated and rated action thriller happily straddles both the popular and art-house genres. A quiet young man lives to drive, racing and doing stunts by day and driving getaway cars for crooks at night. Things get interesting when he becomes involved with the young woman next door, but when her husband is released from jail, they set off down a path which leads to violence and complications that none of them were expecting.

101 minutes.
No persons under 16 (Language, Nudity, Violence).

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconDrive looks like one kind of movie in the ads, and it is that kind of movie. It is also a rebuke to most of the movies it looks like.
18
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThis is a moody film, with moments of understated, dark humor and bleakness. Most importantly, it shows that movies can generate a testosterone-and-adrenaline cocktail without requiring viewers to undergo a frontal lobotomy to appreciate the result.
18
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconBuckle up for the existential bloodbath of Drive, a brilliant piece of nasty business that races on a B-movie track until it switches to the dizzying fuel of undiluted creativity. Damn, it's good. You can get buzzed just from the fumes coming off this wild thing.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconAn action pic that plays to the viewer's reptilian and higher functioning brain processes, Drive ends up taking the overly familiar and manages to send it down a road that ends up feeling new and unexplored.
