Drive has some things going for it that will require a viewing.
1) The film is about a criminal underworld driver which, as we all know, is the best job in the criminal underworld. Or at least the most entertaining. I guess "boss" would be better.
2) It's directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, who's done some good stuff, including Bronson and the awesome Pusher trilogy. He's not averse to getting weird, as well, which might account for this visual.
3) Hooded-out Hendricks.
4) A synth/80s-style soundtrack in the mode of Michael Mann and Tangerine Dream.
5) Albert Brooks in Scorpio mode.
Peep the trailer.
