Let me just begin this article by pointing out the final paragraph of this post is the most important of the review.
Featuring Ryan Gosling amidst an impressive cast, the Nicholas Winding Refn-directed Drive is one of those rare films that become immediate classics. While touting some action and crime thriller material, the film is essentially a character study, with extraordinary technical work and some significant symbolism – all of which when combined demand your attention throughout the entire movie.
Drive focuses around an unnamed protagonist known only as The Driver, who leads a life of dichotomy involving cars – working as a mechanic and stunt driver by day, but by night works as a getaway driver for criminals in Los Angeles working heists. Moving to a new apartment, he lives next door to neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan) and her son Benicio (Kaden Leos). The three develop a new friendship that seems to put The Driver onto a new passageway in life.
A nice little collection of behind the scenes set photos from Baz Luhrmann‘s upcoming new take on F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s classic novel, The Great Gatsby, have found their way online.
The images show stars Leonardo DiCaprio, the lovely Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire on set and in full costume and looking prim and proper and perfectly adapted to the period. DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby in the movie, while Mulligan plays Daisy Buchanan and Maguire plays Nick Carraway.

With her star distinctly on the rise, if it hasn’t already gone through the roof, actress Carey Mulligan has now become one of the biggest names in the acting game.
Variety is reporting that both The Coen Brothers and Spike Jonze have tapped the actress to star as the female lead in their respective next pictures. For the pair of brothers, she’ll star opposite Oscar Isaac in Inside Llewyn Davis, and opposite Joaquin Phoenix in Jonze’s next project.
Christmas 2012 just got a whole lot more interesting.
With Leonardo DiCaprio set to see the release of his Quentin Tarantino-directed slave picture, Django Unchained on Christmas Day next year, Box Office Mojo has revealed that another DiCaprio film has set the day as its debut date. The outlet reports that the actor’s turn as Jay Gatsby in Baz Luhrmann‘s long gestating take on the F. Scott Fitzgerald story, The Great Gatsby will premiere on that date as well. Talk about a hunky way to spend Christmas.
