More an artful thriller than the chase film its trailer might suggest, Drive defies expectations on several levels. Ryan Gosling ( left) plays a stunt driver who moonlights as the go- to guy for crooks who need a quick getaway. The trouble starts with his beautiful neighbour ( Carey Mulligan) whose husband, fresh out of jail, enlists his help in pulling off a heist. When it is called for, Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn can certainly deliver a thrilling car chase, but it is the gravitas underpinning the action that really propels this film.
