A superhumanly cool and utterly non-blinking Ryan Gosling puts on his best Steve McQueen movie-star air as a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver for real. Not everyone will go for this floridly artificial thriller's lurch from suspense into ultra-violence, but "Drive" won the directing prize at Cannes this year for Nicolas Winding Refn. And there it won many, many fans.
