Directed by: Marc Forster

Starring: Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts, Ryan Gosling

Written by: David Beniof

From IMDB:

This movie focuses on the attempts of a psychiatrist to prevent one of his patients from committing suicide while trying to maintain his own grip on reality.

This movie will mess with your head. It’s worthy, though.

Movie Recommendation: Lars and the Real Girl/Drive (possibly)

This is definitely a quirky movie. If you don’t like quirky movies, then you may not want to watch it. I enjoyed it immensely.

Ryan Gosling could have played this for straight out laughs, but he didn’t. There is humor, but his performance is so subtle, it doesn’t feel like he’s making a joke out of it. Serious business kids.

Of course, don’t be like me and start watching Drive right after the movie, because all the feel-goodness goes away really quick:

 

Or do watch it. Drive is a great movie regardless.

This is a devastating movie in every sense of the word. Not because it’s violent (although there is one scene that is), but it takes the viewer through the deterioration of a relationship, cut through with scenes of the beginning when there was still hope.

I don’t know how he does it, but Ryan Gosling can make anything sexy, from playing the ukelele to male pattern baldness. Michelle Williams matches him step for step in this beautiful film.
