Note: Having previously indulged here in a discussion about "them teenage witches", Alex Ewing returns to the podcast. In addition, Michael "Dorkman" Scott makes his first appearance, unfaithfully straying from his smarter and prettier partner, Down In Front. The three of us are here to gush about one of the best films of 2011 (yeah, I said it), Drive. We talk about the nuts and bolts screenplay, the unconventional direction, the ethereal synth-pop soundtrack and the brutal, crackling intensity of it all. Also, here's the animated tribute to the film Alex was referring to in this episode. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the movie on your DVD.
