Let me first tell you, this film is not for everyone. Certain directors have a fan base that pretty much follow them anywhere. If you’ve seen director Robert Rodriguez‘s other films such as; Planet Terror, Desperado Trilogy, or the original Machete then you will be familiar with Machete kills humor, over-the-top violence, and nods to the “grindhouse” B-films of the 70′s.

I have said many times that I enjoy films that are “hidden treasures” (films that came out that you might’ve missed, but discover later and end up being quite surprised). Discovering these “quieter” films that have slipped past us because of films like Iron Man 3 or Pacific Rim hogging the box office, it is a treat to discover them at home and sometimes they take us by surprise. In this case, Spring breakers took me by a huge surprise.

When it comes to Directors, most people think of the “big boys” like Spielberg, Lucas, Cameron, Scorsese and Eastwood, but the younger generation has their fair share of great Directors as well; Kevin Smith, Robert Rodriguez, Bryan Singer, and of course, Quentin Tarantino.

This film is very … mis-read. Ricci play’s Rae, a MAJOR sex-addict that is pure white trailer trash, living in the South, & is a wild child with NO remorse AT ALL of what she does or with whom. After a wild drunkin party, Rae is found beaten nearly to death and discovered by the side of the road by a Southern blues musician; Lazarus(played by Samual Jackson). He takes her in & to help her, but once he realizes her sex-addict illness, he chains her up so he can keep her there to redeem her to a normal life.

I enjoy taking a break from the blockbusters and sequels and just try something …different. I don’t always make it to the theater during the year so some films have to wait till DVD and they don’t end up on my Best of the Year List, but sometimes waiting is a good thing. And sometimes waiting…is for a reason. I had heard mixed reviews about Drive that I knew I’d wait till DVD. Some critics thought it was a great film and deserved Oscar nom’s, while others felt it was too slow, boring, and confusing. Well, here is what I think about Drive.
