The Digital Gym Cinema launches its newest ongoing series MODERN CLASSICS, a celebration of contemporary movies that have established themselves as indispensable influencers of style, structure, and modalities with Nicolas Winding Refn’s DRIVE, a hyper-stylized thrill ride about a wheelman for hire (Ryan Gosling) involved in a heist gone awry.
Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can’t help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac). After a heist intended to pay off Standard’s protection money spins unpredictably out of control, Driver finds himself driving defense for the girl he loves, tailgated by a syndicate of deadly serious criminals. But when he realizes that the gangsters are after more than the bag of cash in his trunk-that they’re coming straight for Irene and her son-Driver is forced to shift gears and go on offense.
“… Drive is a needle-punch of adrenaline to the aorta.” – The Atlantic
“Drive is pedal-to-the-metal stuff. Don’t get behind the wheel unless you can take the rush.” – Detroit News
“Anyone watching Drive won’t be able to take their eyes off Gosling. Playing a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a wheelman for criminals, he rocks like a young Steve McQueen or Robert De Niro.” – Toronto Star
“Enters the viewer like a sharp unseen blade.” – Slate
“Here is still another illustration of the old Hollywood noir principle that a movie lives its life not through its hero, but within its shadows.” – Roger Ebert
