Retro Duo: Drive (2011); The Heat (2013)
Drive (2011) Director: Nicolas Winding Refn One of my favorite movies from the last decade. I just watched it for the fourth or fifth time, and I still marvel at it. The basic story elements are straight out of the mythical Western movies of Sergio Leone: a...
