I read James Sallis's novel DRIVE before seeing this film, and that made my anticipation skyrocket. When I finally saw this movie I was completely taken by it. The Directing, and Cinema photography was amazing, the acting was terrific, and the soundtrack/score was excellent as well. The character of Driver has to be the coolest film character in years, Gosling showed me that he can play an awesome hero. The supporting cast was great. Mulligan, Pearlman, Brooks, and Cranston all brought their A game. I love Art-House films and has to be one of my all time favorites ! I have nothing negative to say about this masterpiece.
