ONE FOR EACH GENERATION Anybody who drive cars for a living certainly has a story to tell.
The similarities between Taxi Driver (1976) and Drive (2011) are reflected in the characterization, the storyline, the shots and the ambiguous ending for both films. Some might argue which one is the best, but lets not compare them. Both Scorsese and Refn have created films that will last for generations to come. They also could not choose a better actor to play the lead. De Niro and Gosling both act as a loner who prone to violence and fall in love with women they can’t have. While Travis Bickle is one of De Niro’s most iconic role, Gosling has establish himself as one of Hollywood’s most popular leading man.
“All the animals come out at night - whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick, venal. Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets. I go all over. I take people to the Bronx, Brooklyn, I take ‘em to Harlem. I don’t care. Don’t make no difference to me. It does to some. Some won’t even take spooks. Don’t make no difference to me.”
So, AS USUAL I have been working away in secret with @kayzig on rampant stuff, and I am finally solidifying these ladies (who you may have seen glimpses of) into definite roles. Well, you’ve seen Bianca and Cybil on and off… I guess Urmi is a debut!
If she was here I’d probably be just as crazy now as I was then in about 5 minutes. Ain’t that ridiculous?… Naw, it ain’t really. ‘Cause being crazy about a woman like her is always the right thing to do. Being an old decrepit bag of bones, that’s what’s ridiculous.
