Driver Review - Joshua Martin-Corrales

The first I heard of 'Drive' was on Conan O'Brian, where the only real thing they talked about was Ryan Gosling's jacket in the movie, and I wasn't exactly interested in it. When I heard all the buzz about it, I asked my sister, who had seen it in theaters, and she said, "I don't see why it wasn't nominated for anything." Now, I've seen the movie, and I can't help but agree, why the hell wasn't this movie nominated for best movie? Or best score? Or best male lead? Or best adapted screenplay? And why didn't it win sound editing? Needless to say, I think was the best movie I've seen all year.

First, let me talk about the music, as a musician myself, I take notice if a movie's score is especially good, and while some of the tracks were recycled from the Social Network, several themes and the main theme were completely original, and done by, oddly enough, by Cliff Martinez, the former drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The music throughout the movie uses the device of themes, which is extremely powerful, as opposed to modern scoring which is done to simply accompany the images perfectly, theme scoring creates recurring patterns indicating certain emotions and specific characters, and can be layered and edited to mean different things even as they repeat. Two things about the score's importance, in the all-important stomp scene, you hear two themes, which is Irene's, then a theme of violence, marking a powerful transition and sharp division between both, the track is called, "Skull Crushing". Another scene with powerful music is the scene early in the film, where The Driver is with Irene and Benicio, spending the day with them, as we first hear the track, "A Real Hero", which returns at the end of the movie.

While I'm on scenes, let me talk more about some other ones, the stomp scene speaks for itself, it shows the division of the character and his love, and his demonstration of a kind of truth, but enough about that. I also mentioned the scene where The Drive spends the day with Irene and her child, while nothing is said, the scene shows this instant kind of connection between them and him, and it starts the real relationship between them. While I'm on it, I should briefly mention dialogue, there's not much of it. Not at all. I love that. The movie didn't need it, and everything was perfectly silent, dialogue was usually thin and short, they let the scene tell you what was going on, and didn't make it obvious, which is something you don't see too often in film. Another important scene is when Bryan Cranston (who is always amazing) is telling Irene about The Driver and himself, in some of the only real monologuing in the movie, he explains much about The Driver's characters and goals. Another is where The Driver kills Nino by crashing into him, the silence of the scene is perfect, and the passing light make it unforgettable, not to mention good camera work, which applies to all these scenes of course, the movie's camera is always good, shots positioned perfectly make the movie's intentions covering for the lack of dialogue. The last important scene, is of course, the ending, where The Driver sits perfectly still, a kind of fake out to the audience, the scene is perfect, it makes us think he's done, then he blinks, and the music starts, the ending begins, this kind of, breaking out of death is explored, and the movie ends soon after, with a less than satisfying, though still powerful ending.

Now, the story, is a split one, we have the storyline of revenge for The Driver, his heist gone wrong, and the repercussions, the other is a love story with Irene. I think the love story is the better half of the movie, the love is pure and when Irene's husband returns from prison, he doesn't try to interfere, but makes himself available, and even as he is caught up with his other storyline, the heist and its repercussions, he still manages to act properly to her, and to tell her the truth even if it means losing her, right before he has to show her that he's deeply involved, in the all-important stomp scene. The story lines are interwoven so well, one might just say that it was one story, but the fact that they are so well put together, yet are still distinguishable is a definite bonus to the movie, you see two sides of The Driver, while you still explore this one cohesive idea.

Finally, let me talk about acting. Like I said, the dialogue in this movie is nearly nonexistent, even in the stomp scene, where an action line begs to come into play, the movie remains silent and lets actions speak louder than words. Which is my point, actions speaking louder than words, the lines are delivered perfectly, but the actors exist in this silence so very perfectly that it is incredible, Ryan Gosling's acting is through the roof, as the character who speaks the least, he had the most to say with his acting, and he spoke volumes. Then there's him and Irene, played by Carey Mulligan (whose accent does not bleed through at all and I'm totally jealous), the relationship half of the movie is focused on. Like I said, it's pure, they only kiss once, in the all-important stomp scene, and other than that, the most they do is hold hands. They barely speak, so like I said, action, the way they look at each other, the emotional in the barebones lines in their dialogue is so powerful we can tell absolutely that Irene is the most important thing to The Driver. Their music too, helps establish this relationship, and their closeness even without touching, they stand so close to each other, which is perfect to show more than what dialogue could tell us.

Overall, l think the movie is great, and you should see it and complain loudly to your friends about how it didn't get any academy awards.

Sound A+: Music, car noises, stomping, perfect.

Visuals A+: Shot so very well I go crazy, every scene is picture perfect.

Acting A+: Not one person is lacking, even the child actor, who are sometimes just awful.

Story B+: The only thing I don't think is perfect is the story, The Driver as a character is weakly covered by the story, and the pacing of it is sometimes just strange. It's still super good though.

Overall A: Super good, super super good, but not completely perfect, not many movies are though. (needs more dream sequences.)

Scuderi's Drive Film Review

Drive is not the simple movie it's title makes it out to be. In fact, it is so much more than just a drive, but then again, it depends on how you interpret the title. Drive is a story focused on the character known only as "the driver," who drives in heists as a well trusted and highly skill professional driver. In the opening sequence, the driver takes us on a wild ride in attempt to outrun and escape the L.A. police. As evident throughout the entire film, camera angles are phenomenal and seem as though they couldn't have been in better places in conjunction with the color filtering and lighting scheme of the entire film. When the opening chase comes to a conclusion, we are instantly left to question his role in the film as a protagonist or antagonist or neither. The clever camera work, lighting, character traits that drag us into curiosity about the characters and the events unfolding, and the complete story that the opening sequence provides the audience with, is enough to walk away with happy to have seen the film. 

Driver (Ryan Gosling) is the man behind the wheel that the story focuses on throughout the majority of the film. His character is calm, quiet, stoic, and serious, drawing out our curiosity of what kind of person he is, what his background is, why he drives, etc. While we are left to question what his "drive" and goals are in the beginning, his character quickly evolves and his goals and character become much more evident when he falls in love with his neighbor, Irene (Carey Mulligan). This is where the story takes off and leads into something entirely new and different for the driver. Though Driver takes the role similar to that of the "other" in the film, this is not your typical "other" film. 

Back on the film's camerawork, Drive incorporates very unique shots of the driving scenes in this film, unlike most driving scenes and films. Most of the shots are taken from inside to the car, providing us with a unique view from inside the car instead of focus on the things that happen on the outside of the car (they are practically irrelevant). The entire opening sequence is primarily shot from inside the car with the driver, throwing us right into the intensity of the chases and the overall ride from the passenger seat. Throughout the film, there are a lot of well placed and well timed shots in which characters move into environments where surroundings and foreground make for interesting still shots. In the scene where the driver kills the first two people in the film, he stands in the doorway of the bathroom with blood on his face. The shot is so well position in conjunction with the lighting, that when he slowly moves back into the bathroom, his face goes from being in the sunlight to covered in a shadow. Many of the shots like these are somewhat symbolic of the characters in the film. 

Another prime example of a very well placed shot is when the driver walks into his dark apartment and the shadow of his head is cast perfectly in the square of a window pane on the wall. Though it may or may not be symbolic, the shot is very well coordinated and artistic. Another clever shot is when the driver puts the groceries down in Irene's kitchen and is talking to her when he notices himself in the square, thin mirror on the wall. In both of these shots and in shots alike, music (if any), lighting, and camera angle/position clearly coincide with each other to deliver a full impact of the film's creativity and storytelling. Music plays a major role in the film as a tone setter and storyteller in itself. The most popular and most cited scene is the elevator scene of Drive, which amazingly combines lighting and music to tell the emotions, thoughts, and feelings of the characters, therefore telling us an aspect of the story that dialogue could not replace. The music in the film is largely connected. For example, in the elevator scene and in a the previous scene where the driver kills the first two people in the film, we hear the same scary building tone in the elevator right before he kills the man, just like the tone after he kills the first two men. 

When it comes to artistic and engaging films, Drive does not fail to please the viewer with the combined theatrical elements that are incorporated into the film. The acting is without question very effective in the portrayal of the characters of the film. Many of the moments of the film where dialogue can be placed are filled with effective facial expressions and actions conducted by the characters, whom seem to build off of each other quite effectively in order to make the scene seem a realistic as possible. After watching the film and reviewing it, I notice the clever storytelling used by the characters along with the theatrical aspects (lighting, music, and camera position) that bring out the stories, traits, and parts of the characters not thought about through dialogue. When I first heard about the film, I thought that it would be disappointing and dry because of what others were saying about the film and how it's only about a man that drives, when it is in fact layered in storyline. The depth of this film is almost indescribable. 

Since the story is so layered and there is so much to think about in the film, I feel as though the story and film is very effective. The full stories of all the charters are not given away, which leave me and the audience to wonder about each of them, and most of all, the ending is very "open ended," which leaves us with the rest of the story left to our imagination. Of the layers of the film, I find the story of the driver wanting to become "normal"/the love story the most interesting. We never see the driver smile, show happiness, or  act as a open person until he is with Irene, driving through the L.A. gutters. Through the beginning of the film, the driver is depicted as this mysterious, quiet, and emotionless person until being with Irene changes his character completely when he is around her. Reflecting upon the driver himself, one must wonder, "What does it take and mean to actually be 'normal?'" I believe that the answer is not evident, but rather hidden in the film and only answerable though personal interpretation. 

With the love story, the most important relationship that is developed in the story is the relationship of the driver and Irene. The relationship between the driver and Irene is developed in multiple ways. To initiate the relationship, the driver mets Irene on the elevator and we can see he is obviously interested in her as the camera focuses on his face and on Irene. Later in the supermarket, the driver sees Irene down the aisle and then backs up and avoids her probably because he can see that she has a kid and is "taken." Film makers typically use the story, boy meeter girl, boy falls in love with girl, and the third part is open ended. It's the same in this film, but the film is set up in a way that the driver meets Irene, finds her interesting, avoids her, helps her, takes her on a nice ride, falls in love as Irene falls in love with him as well, there is conflict in the way of their love relationship (the return of Irene's husband), and then at the height of the romance the driver has to end their relationship to protect Irene. 

With the multiple story lines, Drive allows us to have more "room space" to explore the various elements and concepts of the story that the film tries to get across. Most movies contain that simple sort of straight line story plot, whereas Drive provides multiple aspects to one story that weave together to provoke thought. The love story, as they typically end happy, does not exactly end the same way in this film. Driver turns out to have the experience of the "other" where he is loved by someone as he loves them in return, but cannot be with them due to the circumstances.  

5 Significant Scenes (Some mentioned earlier): 


- The scene where two men shoot into the hotel and kill the lady in the bathroom and nearly kill the Driver. When the Driver moves to the wall and manages to kill the man in the bathroom and then shoots the other guy breaking through the door, there is a strong musical score that highlights the emotions and intensity of the events that just occurred. As the music intensifies steadily, the driver, with a shocked look on his face, moves into the shadow of the bathroom while standing at the threshold of the bathroom. I think this marks a very significant moment in the movies where the driver's dark side is highlighted. This is the first time in the movie where he kills anyone and it plays a significant role in the change of his character and emotions. This scene is very connected to the elevator scene as far as character development of the driver and musical score. 


- One part in the movie where the driver is driving through the L.A. gutters with Irene and her son in the car. This is the first scene that is really bright and has a cheery tone. Here the driver, who seems to be this all quiet, serious, and difficult to understand character is actually smiling. This scene plays a major role in setting up the goal of the driver, which can be interpreted in many ways. What this scene highlights for me is that the driver wants to become "normal" and settle down without having to resort to crime in his life. I believe this scene in particular is extremely significant because the driver finally gets to experience something that makes him happy, which takes him from his sort of dark and mysterious character. This moment in the movie is also a highlight of the development of the love story layered within the film. Music is very joys and free in this scene, which makes the audience feel "alive."


- Elevator scene (second one) is significant for a number of reason. It is where the driver initially meets Irene and where he leaves her last in the movie. The elevator scene before the characters part is a monumental component of the film. It is a sort of climax (especially for the love story of the film) that represents the parting of the driver from the only thing that seemed to lift up his spirits, Irene. Here there is a romantic kiss moment, which can be interpreted at first as a way to look non suspicious to the guy with the gun who is supposed to kill the driver in the elevator, but this can also be interpreted as a farewell kiss. Another major aspect of this scene is that it is the first and last time the driver and Irene actually share romance. Lighting in this scene is very significant along with the musical score that sets the emotions and tone of the scene. The music and lighting shift to fit the things that go on in this scene, such as the loud sort of mystical music that shifts into the terrifying tone of something serious about to happen (the same tone as the one after the driver killed the first two people in the movie. When the driver looks back at Irene after he has killed the man in the elevator, we can see how terrified he is to have caused Irene to be scared of him. Driver reveals the dark and obviously not so gentle, kind, helpful, and caring side that Irene knew him for. 


- The scene where Irene's husband is home and there is a party going on and we can see Irene in the back looking very gloomy. Here we can see that through her emotions, she has strong feelings for the driver and doesn't know how to react to her husband's homecoming. Here is another pivotal moment in the love story of the film in which we conflict is introduced to the love story. The music in this scene is a song that has the lyrics, "I don't eat. I don't sleep." I find the music is this scene very descriptive of what is going on in the film and how the characters are feeling. Interestingly enough, like the game that is on the radio in the first chase scene, there are a lot of musical selections that portray the story that the film itself is bringing to light. 


- The ending scenes, where Irene and the driver have their last conversation. Here we can see that Irene, even after the sequence of events with the driver telling her about her husband and the elevator scene, is willing to be with the driver again. However, we know that the two characters will not be together again because the driver will always have to, "look over his shoulder." Therefore if the driver were to go and be with Irene again, he would be risking her life. This scene plays a major part in the resolution and of the overall story. For the love story, this is the conclusion that the driver cannot be with Irene and this is also the conclusion for the crime layer of the film because the driver has killed the man he needed to and can now drive far away. The music that picks up at this point in the film is very "free" like and makes us feel sorry for the driver, but relieved at the same time.

- So the purpose of this project was to create a show/ radio or something media involved that has to do with relationship and use 10 vocabularies that you learned this quarter and the subjunctives etc and to be able to use it in a proper way. For our group, we wanted to be unique and made the most interesting/ weird radio show about relationships and we had different people calling in, sharing their odd relationships status.  

What did you learn from doing this project?  
- From this project, I learned that

What did you learn from doing this project?  
Doing this project helped me learn more about subject/verb agreement in spanish, and different tenses of verbs when conjugating them. I also learned more about relationships and how to describe your partner/spouse in spanish.

How do you feel about your final product?

I feel good about the work my group and I presented to the room. Although I don't like hearing myself recorded, I believe we all did an awesome job.

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?

If I had the opportunity to do this project over again, I will change the tone of my voice so I wouldn't have to hear myself when I listen to my work. I would definitely keep the script the same because it was hilarious. Other than that I wouldn't do anything to the project.

Henninger, Proyecto de Queso

http://scienceleadership.org/blog/Queso

Describe the Q3BM: 



What was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?

The assignment was to create a radio or television show about peoples relationships while incorporating vocabulary. Our group decided to do a radio show where people were calling in and asking for advice on their strange relationships. I think this format proved very useful for making sure we had all the criteria we needed. 

What did you learn from doing this project?  

I learned how often we used ser and estar in everyday conversation. I also learned how to use them properly. 


How do you feel about your final product?
I like it because it was entertaining, while still getting the point across. 

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?

I would just make sure that the audio quality was better before publishing it, but then again it was mostly just due to technical difficulties.

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?

We choose to make an audio podcast because we thought we could put more in with the little time we had with other projects. We did a better job making an audio than if we were to make a video with the same time.

What did you learn from doing this project?  


I gained more practice with ser and estar. Plus using relationship vocabulary I learned more haw to describe situations. I thought the practice was the most helpful.

How do you feel about your final product?


I feel confident. We worked hard on our script to meet the necessary requirements and make it interesting a bit. the editing was good and I know we including everything and more.

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?


I would devote more time to the script, because if we did then we could have finished a bit earlier and moved on.

Queso!!!

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?

So our assignment was to make a video or podcast radio show about relationships. Our group decided that we wanted to make a podcast instead of a video because it would be easier for us to manage and give us more time to focus on our vocabulary and words.

What did you learn from doing this project? 
From this project I learned a couple new words like "horon" and "ventana" along with getting a change to work on diction and my speaking skills.

How do you feel about your final product?

We didn't do anything excessively fancy or over the top but I'm not ashamed of it either. There are small details that I'd like to tweak about it but overall I believe it's a good project.

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?

I think I would of took a little more effort to make sure the recorded audios were more clear.

A Government of Which People?

occupy-movement-demonstrator-oakland.n
Our website focused on how the American people revolted against the government as a result of the government becoming increasingly responsive to the upper class Americans. We choose to focus on the Socialist, Populist, and the progressive moment because their ideals are closely related to the ideals of the Occupy movement.

1. The assignment was to create a video about relationships using the requirements need such as 10 vocab words and different tenses. Our group decided to do a bachelorette theme video because we thought we could be creative with the idea and explore different ideas.


2. From this project, I learned new vocabulary. I also learned how to use the perfect present tense and when to use it. 

 
3. I love our final product. The editing, the audio, and it is also hilarious.

4. If I could do the project all over again, I would like to mimic a different reality show such as Jerry Springer or Maury.

Bienvenida a mi programa de televisión, me llamo es Coca y yo soy veinta y uno años. Yo estoy muy contenta hoy, y quiero ayudar personas con sus problemas. Yo voy a dar tú con mi asesoramiento mejor. Espero que yo pueda tú!

Dime sobre una vez cuando tu pareja hico algo dulce para ti.

 

Katherine:

Mi novio alquiló un barco para nuestro aniversario, y nosotros vimos la puesta del sol. Él cocinó un filete con puré de papas. También, nosotros compartimos un sundae con crema batida y una cereza. Durante el noche,s ha propuesto a mi, eso fui un sueño real.

 

Cyndi: ¿Cómo fuiste su pareja le pedirá que baile?

 

Allison: Hola Coco, mi novio hace lo dulce que me pido que baile. Él hace una pizza y escribió vas a ir al baile conmigo en el queso! Era tan dulce. Mi novio es el más dulce niño. Cuando vamos al baile juntos, él está recibiendo una limo. Mi baile es el 13 de abril. Me preocupa que no voy a estar listo. Además, digo que la chica que llamó antes de mí tiene un novio bueno también. Sin embargo, creo que podía haber cocinado una cena mejor. No debería haber llevado en un barco. Barcos oler. Tendría que haber dado a sus flores. Mi novio es bueno a la compra de flores.

 

Cyndi Lynn:

Fue un tiempo cuando tu pareja engañó en tú. ¡Escribas!

 

Taina:

Un tiempo, fui a la colegio de mi novia. Yo quieré soprender a ella. Cuando llegé a su dormitorio, golpe la puerta, y un chico con pelo rubio respondio. Cuando lo miré me sienti enfogonado con ella. Yo quieré a mí novia, pero cuando yo ve ella, yo lo dijé a ella que nosotros fuemos terminado.

 

Cyndi Lynn:

Aqui es Coco’s reflexión final.

Es importante que todos los persones traten sus parejas bien. Una relación perfecta es con dos personas que son honradas, respetuosas, intimidades, y únicas. Sine los cualidades, la relación no función bien. Es necesario que tú encuentres una pareja quien es comete a tú. Recuerda que tú eres hermosa.

Reflection

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?
The assignment was to either make an radio show or tv show about how to resolve problems they are having in their relationship. My group decided to do a radio show because we wanted to do something different.

What did you learn from doing this project?  I learned different shortcuts of how to pronounce things. I also learned a lot more spanish.

How do you feel about your final product?I feel really good about the finish product. I know we all kept recording over and over so I know it will be good.

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same? I would change it to video. Because we have a lot of funny lines so I think they are meant to see.

what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?
The assignment was to create a project based around relationships using the subjunctive, present perfect tenses and verbs ser and estar. My group decided to do a spanish version of the show Cheaters because we would be able t utilize all the components that needed to be included in our project.

What did you learn from doing this project?  

I learned how to properly conjugate verbs in the subjunctive clause and also how to give advice. 


How do you feel about your final product?

I feel that we worked very hard on our project and the final project is a great display of all the hard work we put into our project.

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?

I would probably organize our time a little bit better but other than that I love our concept and I think we did a great job.

Q3 BM Reflection

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?

For our Quarter 3 Bm, as a group we had to ether make a love game show or radio show and the it would be surrounded around trying to give advice. Each individual person had to use the verbs ser and estar, as well as using the subjunctive tense, and the past perfect tense. Our group decided to do a radio show that was focused on callers callers phoning in with their problems. We thought that this format was easier to edit as well as on an individual level (each person could record at home if they wanted),


What did you learn from doing this project?  


From this project, I think I have bettered my ability to use each tense, as well as gaining a better understanding of the past perfect tense. I also feel like I learned a lot more technical skills (because I did a lot more editing than I have done in the past).


How do you feel about your final product?

I'm very proud of my group! I know that I kind of pushed everyone when it came to pronunciations, and I feel as they everyone gave their best efforts when recording their parts. Also, I love the dialogue that my group cam up with! I feel like we have some great lines in there.


If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same? 

I think that I would've either tried a video and did a love show, or I would've have played around with more sound effects on our audio.

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?
 In this BM we have to talk about relationships. So my group decides that we can make a radio station kind of love guru or love doctor to fix people's relationship. We think that it's pretty funny and easy hence the reason why we wanted to use the idea.

What did you learn from doing this project?  

We learned new vocabularies! We also learned new things about spanish grammar and how to use it properly. 

How do you feel about your final product?

I think it's okay. I guess we could've did something that will make it more appealing and A+ kind of project. 

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?

I guess we could have a better script and storyline.
