As a whole, the film seems pointless and incredulous. Yet it's thoroughly absorbing and easy to suspend disbelief because of its noir style and trance-like atmosphere, underscored by its prevailing pulsing score, and maudlin in some.
Drive proves you can make a gripping piece of art almost solely through the use of atmosphere. Gosling understands this and carries the film and its all-important tone with few words, but much intensity.
