Netflix is about to remove brilliant Ryan Gosling movie with 93% on Rotten Tomatoes

Netflix is about to remove brilliant Ryan Gosling movie with 93% on Rotten Tomatoes

You'll want to catch this film before it's gone.

If you’re a Ryan Gosling fan (and let’s face it, who isn’t) you should brace yourself, because Netflix is about to drop a classic Gosling flick from its roster.

We're talking about a movie that not only showcases Gosling at his best, but also boasts a whopping 93% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Before Gosling had everyone talking about his 'Kenergy' in the recent Barbie movie, he was turning heads in a very different role. Think back to 2011 - a time when Gosling wasn't associated with plastic fantastic but with the gritty, neon-lit streets of a film that became a cult classic. Yep, we're talking about Drive.

Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, Drive is more than just a film - it's a cinematic experience. So if you’re yet to see it, or merely want to relive the action, you might want to hurry because your last chance to watch it on Netflix is January 3. That's not a lot of time to get an eye-full of a movie that truly deserves its frankly insane rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

So what makes Drive so special? It blends intense car chases, a simmering romance and unapologetic violence. Although it’s not your regular action film - it has a kind of aura that other films just don’t have. It often forgoes dialogue, letting the awesome and sometimes unnerving soundtrack do the talking.

If you’ve never seen it, Drive takes its story from a 2005 novel by James Sallis, where Gosling plays a Hollywood stunt driver with a unique side hustle - he's a getaway driver. Without sharing any spoilers, things take a turn for the worst when Irene (played by Carey Mulligan) moves next door, and our protagonist finds himself caught in a web of danger and emotions.

As for its near-perfect Rotten Tomatoes score? Well, the movie is a masterclass in action and drama, made all the more rousing thanks to a cast that includes Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks, Oscar Isaac, Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman. Each actor brings depth to their character, elevating the film beyond a simple action flick.

If you're planning a movie marathon or just looking for a really good film to watch, Drive should be at the top of your list. But remember, you've only got one more day to catch it on Netflix, so act fast because, after that, you'll have to find another way to enjoy Gosling's iconic performance.

In need of other Netflix reccos? A new true crime documentary, Bitconned, hit the streaming service on New Year’s Day, and it's got everybody talking. This cunning documentary tells the story of Centra Tech, a cryptocurrency company that, according to the Department of Justice, scammed victims out of more than $25 million worth of digital funds.

The trailer is narrated by Ray Trapani, one of the company's co-founders, who somewhat shockingly opens with: "Ever since I was a kid I've always wanted to be a criminal”. Surely that alone is enough to get you on board.
