DRIVE

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES PICK OF THE WEEK -

SBS ONE, Satur­day, 9.30pm, MA15+ ( 2011)

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.
