Wild and imaginative! Sabu's best film!
14 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a shame that more people haven't seen Sabu's movies. He's one of the greatest filmmakers of our time. DANGAN RUNNER, UNLUCKY MONKEY, POSTMAN BLUES, MONDAY... all blistering, hyperactive chase films packed with unforgettable characters and originality.

DRIVE continues that tradition and is not only the best Sabu film yet, it's one of the greatest films made in the past 15 years. Forget 'Crouching Tiger.' Screw 'Hana-bi.' THIS film is the prime example of the heart, soul and imagination that makes Asian cinema so wonderful.

It's a story that hits the ground running and takes you on a wild ride that goes places you never suspect. No genre is left unexplored. No emotion left untouched.

Why is it that generic, self-indulgent, pretentious art-house dramas find their way Stateside, when inventive masterpieces like this go unnoticed?
