Finally out now after weeks of advance hype, 'Drive' tells the story of an unnamed stunt driver (Ryan Gosling) who moonlights as a wheelman-for-hire, navigating criminals through the streets of Los Angeles while armed only with his wheels and his killer tunes. If it sounds like a story that could only happen in Hollywood, it is: from an opening chase scene that ends at the Staples Center to a closing confrontation at a Chinese restaurant in the Valley, 'Drive' puts the Los Angeles you don't normally see on film front-and-center. For director Nicolas Winding Refn, that was totally intentional.
