    I loved drive and i liked your review. Its a timeless film for me even with its 80’s style and feel, when reviewing it i gave it 9/10 something about it really got a hold of me. Gosling is immense. The 80’s had some great movies and the late 80’s Roadhouse you comment on is also brilliant but i could never pinpoint why.

      Thanks for the lovely words.
      I didn’t think I’d like DRIVE. I expected a fast paced Thriller, but the film was very silent in it’s tone and feel. I think I loved it BECAUSE of it’s 80’s styling. Gosling is blowing up, compared to his BREAKER HIGH DAYS (yes, I grew up in Canada and used to watch that. 😐 )
      ROAD HOUSE, and the likes, are brilliant. I love throwbacks to older genres done, not as ‘period’ films, but more with the style and writing. Same reason I loved DEATHPROOF. lol.
