Drive, The Soundtrack and The Man

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

So some say the movie Drive was the best film of 2011 and here at Cufflinksman, we agree, wholeheartedly. An ideal mix of passion, violence, cars, intensity, and on-the-edge-of-your seat suspense, it is a perfect “date night” film, so as long as your date doesn’t have a squeamish stomach.

Defined as “neo-noir”, this film easily could of flopped had it not been for the acting. Yes, it’s action packed, but without Ryan Gosling’s and Mulligan’s brilliant character input, the movie would amount to a boring sack of potatoes. It also harbors some of the best cinematic scenes in the 21st century (think of the elevator scene, for instance).

And one couldn’t leave out the second best part of the film: the soundtrack. Most of the electro-new age/80s style/transient style beats were written and produced by Cliff Martinez. His beats take up a majority of the soundtrack album, but new electro-tech bands such as Desire, College, and even Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx sop up all the amazing points.

And don’t forget about this hypnotic, dance style mix by Desire:

The good news is, the film has recently been put up on Netflix. (whatt???) Yes they finally did something right. And totally worth the $8 a month, just for this film. You’ll thank us later.
