So I have talked about this movie several times in the past, mainly since I first reviewed it and then another time when it was also a Movie of the Day post as well. But today folks, today is special. The LP Edition of this post is mainly so I can show off two pieces of Mondo goodness that are related to the movie that I have gotten in the past month, basically culminating with the acquisition of the long awaited Mondo Drive LP pressing. Behold!
Yeah I even managed to score the rare pink pressing of the LP. I can’t even begin to tell you all how excited I am and that this LP is the little brother to this beauty that is currently hanging up in my house:
So yeah I feel that with today’s haul, this is a good enough time to pick Drive as my Movie of the Day.
You know the drill, here is an excerpt and link to the original review I did to the movie and really, if you haven’t seen this movie yet, DO IT!
Have a good day!
It’s rare when I will come out and say “that is a perfect movie”. Everything just vibes and connects so well that it’s a seamless experience watching the movie. I love having my expectations altered in the movie and the play on the genre was refreshing and changed the game for me. I have been impressed with Refn’s previous movies and this is no exception. Refn take the simplistic genre of action and car chases, injects it with this European sensibility and gives us one the most stylish movies of year. Shocking and beautiful violence, electro-pop soundtrack tempo, strong character types, and an unconventional genre skewing film all produce one of my favorite movies of the year.
