The ZS Roe Vlog
Every now and again, a movie comes along that just hits all the right notes; a movie so good that you can’t help but tell others about it. Of all the movies I had a chance to see last year, director Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive was my absolute favourite. Those who read my opinion piece on the Oscar nominations for the previous Academy Awards will know that Drive was snubbed by the Academy. But here’s your chance to right that wrong. See what I have to say about the film, and then check it out for yourself.
For newcomers unfamiliar with this project, The ZS Roe Vlog is my place to share the best in storytelling. Every two weeks I’ll recommend a novel, short story, poem, or film, and bring you along to the places in which these stories have particular significance.
So, without further ado, I give you:
Drive tells the story of a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a wheelman for criminals at night. But when the stunt driver (played by Ryan Gosling) falls in love with his neighbour, Irene (Carey Mulligan), and winds up working a heist with her ex-convict husband, all kinds of trouble ensues.
The ZS Roe Vlog is something of a passion project–a place for me to share with you my favourite stories from various genres and mediums. It is created and written by me, and often shot by my wife or my sister. That music in the background that totally rocks your world? Yeah, I wrote and recorded that, too. Far out, right? In any event, If you have a comment or question, please leave a response below. Thank you for reading and watching.
