I’ve seen Ryan Gosling’s new film, Drive, and that elevator scene still rings true. There are plenty of moments that jolted me from my seat, along with testing my patience for a scene to unfold. Regardless, it pays homage to past film noir masterpieces along with a few from the 70’s, with a modern freshness. And Gosling couldn’t be better, sulking along, mumbling lines like Brando used to, a man on the brink.
The film is highly stylized. Glossy L.A. serves as Gosling’s playground, his choice in cars reflecting American muscle while his clothes hark back to the 70’s, all function no waste. We found a terrific review on the film that digs deeper into the connection of the star’s look and the psychology behind it.
