A taciturn driver of the stunt, racing, and getaway varieties gets himself mixed up in a deadly battle with local gangsters, when his affection for his pretty neighbour and her young son clouds his usually coldly clinical judgement, in Winding Refn’s sickeningly violent yet strangely tender existential thriller. Stylishly shot and enigmatically performed, the film grips with a visceral yet thoughtful power throughout.
