The Art of the Pregnant Pause

2011. 100 minutes. USA. Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. Watchdate: 9/19/2011
Drive is a contemplative action noir with an 80s European aesthetic and a 70s American attitude (or perhaps sensibility might be the better word). It strikes an unusual balance between the visceral and the detached. The cast is pretty good: Albert Brooks is particularly inspired in this joint. It's one of the better 2011 movies that I've seen.
