Really I found the whole tempo of the film really interesting and the quality of the filming was great to, then again if your looking for "action all the time" this is not it..

It reminded me of this James Caan movie "Thief". Interesting movie, co-starring Willie Nelson, Tuesday Weld and Jim Belushi.

Yeah you are right it features some resemblance, I actually found Drive somehow refreshing.

That's excellent. I did a search on Netflix for Slaughterhouse 5 when I first got my Roku, but came up empty. Glad to see they have it listed now.
BTW, Fahrenheit 451 was awesome in HD. Julie Christie circa 1970 =

Is that the David Chronenberg film about car crash fetishists? With Rosanne Arquette? Or was that "Crash?"

I confess I'm partial to this movie, been a image/sci-fi geek, really interesting production process with great results (In my opinion)

Captain Sky and the World of Tomorrow

more subtitles

"A Very Long Engagement" visually stunning movie - good story - good acting and actors - war - mystery - revenge - love story - it even has subtitles what's not to love. 5 stars!

The Golem another German classic from 1920 and the inspiration to name my R11S/GS "Golem" a monster made out of mud.

Fascinating film in many different ways.

Drive was different, and in the end I really enjoyed it. So much so that I bought it on iTunes.

I really liked that it took its time building to something, and luckily the acting was all superb.

Glad to know I was not CrAzY, or at least I was not crazy alone.
