Still surprised at how many people disliked this

Why are you surprised? It's a highly stylized film that is heavily routed in influences that are pretty obscure to a general audience. Also, I'd say a large portion of general audiences are rather oblivious to irony, and this film pounds us over the head with it in ways that are rarely successful. This picture was set to be polarizing from the start.

Obsessed with this. Such a good soundtrack. I'm going to watch the film again tomorrow, take it all in again.

I think the main problem is people were basically tricked into seeing this movie by its marketing campaign. If you look at the title of the movie and the trailer that features only car chases and action scenes it seems like a completely different movie than it actually is.

I can completely understand how some people felt lied to by the marketing, and were understandably upset when the movie turned out different than they expected.

I absolutely loved Drive, but I think we can admit it's not a typical mainstream movie that everyone can enjoy.

Great fucking movie. Drawn in right away and suspenseful as hell. Why wasn't this nominated for Best Picture? Considering the category allows 10 films, I felt this deserved at least a nod.
