"Drive" with Ryan Gosling

For Movie Monday, we take in an unusual, unforgettable, riveting and sometimes shocking new film from director Nicolas Winding Refn. An unabashed throwback to an earlier time, “Drive” takes you on a one-of-a-kind ride through the darker streets of Los Angeles.

It’s not so much an action film, nor a psychological thriller, nor a heist film nor a western, but a mix of all those things. “Drive” stars Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Ron Perlman, Albert Brooks, Christina Hendricks, and Oscar Isaac. Gosling carries the film, but Mulligan makes it shine.

Next week, “Moneyball”! If you’ve seen either of these films, we’d love to hear your review.
