One of the most celebrated cult films of the 21st century, Nicolas Winding Refn’s 2011 thriller Drive is a modern neo-noir masterpiece. Based on the ‘05 novel by James Sallis, the film tells the story of an unnamed Hollywood stunt driver (Ryan Gosling) who moonlights as a getaway driver in the criminal underworld of LA. Boasting a flawless soundtrack and stunning neon-soaked visuals, Drive is a work of art that has been given the lavish home entertainment release it deserves from those wonderful folks at Second Sight Films. This is absolutely the definitive way to experience Drive.

We took a closer look at the beautiful new box set…


Wow. This is truly one of the most breathtaking home releases I’ve ever seen for any film. Second Sight are certainly the leaders of physical media. To say this is an early contender for release of the year is an understatement; it could just be the release of the decade.

Synopsis
