MPAA: R
Star Rating: 
9 out of 10

This movie is so cool, it doesn’t even care if you like it.

The Pitch: A getaway driver (Ryan Gosling) helps out his neighbor (Carey Mulligan) which puts him up against local mobsters (Albert Brooks, Ron Perlman).

What It Really Is: A slow-boiling noir about underground LA that just oozes cool...and lots of blood. Gosling barely speaks but the motherfucker definitely channels some old school Steve McQueen.

Does Blu-ray Make a Difference? A bit. It has a sleek and gritty look, like an upgraded 70s film.
