Movie: Drive

[TRAILER] Maybe you saw Guillermo del Toro's recent tweet praising Drive as "an unbelievable, exhilarating film." Thing is: he isn't talking about the 2011 Drive with Ryan Gosling. He's talking about the bonkers 1997 US buddy comedy/Hong Kong-style action/sci-fi B movie gem with Mark Dacascos (whom we enjoyed kicking ass in John Wick 3), Kadeem Hardison (Dwayne Wayne from A Different World), and Brittany Murphy, doing one of those turns where she transforms a peripheral "the girl" part into something electric and weird. It's a lost delight that ticks a lot of the best B movie nerd boxes. [more inside]
