Director Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive should have been my number 1 or 2011. I’ve watched the film about a dozen times since and every time I find a new kernal to hold onto, something that I missed or another rabbit hole I neglected to explore. Winding Refn may very well be a master of tone, as it appears he’s again found some clever ways to tap into well-worn material (in this case fighting). Judging from this clip of his next film, Only God Forgives, the director looks to be on a run right now. Wikipedia synopsis after the footage:
The film follows Julian (Ryan Gosling), who runs a Thai boxing club as a front organization for his family’s drug smuggling operation, as he is forced by his mother Jenna to find and kill the individual responsible for his brother’s recent death.
