We reviewed Drive way back in 2011, which you can find here. Not the most in-depth review we’ve ever done admittedly, but the gist is simple, we liked it, a lot.
To now have it on beautiful 4k UHD is brilliant, the transfer is wonderfully done, it pops in all the right places and is subtle in the right-ones too.
If you are a fan of Nicolas Winding Refn then you are in for a real treat as there’s a long conversation between him and his editor and composer about the movie, how it came about etc.
The interview with Mat Newman is interesting, hearing how the movie almost never happened, or how it could have been very “Fast & Furious” in one instance.
