IMG_0169.JPG

Gary's Birthday picks continue! This week, Gary's picked one of his favorite films of the 2010's, Nicolas Winding Refn's DRIVE!

We'll trace its journey from a novel to an action film starring Hugh Jackman, to its eventual fate as an arthouse study on violence and tension in cinema with star Ryan Gosling in one of his most iconic roles.

Also discussed is the film's legacy, and whether or not it belongs in the Psychotronic Hall of Fame! Joining us this week is returning guest Madelaine Hoptry!

Let us know if you think DRIVE deserves to be called one of the greatest cult films of all time!
