'A film that moves relentlessly forward, carrying you along so completely that it's only afterwards, if at all, that you begin to wonder about origins and plausibilities.' London Evening Standard
'One for fans of Taxi Driver and TV's Dexter, Drive is a film whose considerable style at first obscures just how much it'll get under your skin and stay there for weeks to come' Film 4
'Calculating. Methodical. High gloss. Slick. Polished. Drive is the neo-noir thriller of the year.' Behind the Lens
