This snuck up on me – a new film by Nicolas Winding Refn, one of my favourite directors after the magnificent Valhalla Rising. This is simply called ‘Drive’ – not ‘Drive Angry’, here the anger is implied rather than specified. And one hell of a cast as well, with Albert Brooks, Ron Perlman, Christina Hendricks, Bryan Cranston, and Ryan Gosling. I’m a particular fan of Bryan Cranston after watching Breaking Bad, and it will be interesting to directly compare his craggy face with that of Ron Perlman. I think Perlman may have deeper crags, but Cranston might have more.
Looks great, like Gone in 60 Seconds or The Transporter but for grown-ups. And I have a soft spot for claw hammers as a weapon of choice.
