I wanted to name this post Drive vs. The Dark Valley, yet I did not. I came over Drive while listening to some relaxing music; the original movie soundtrack was suggested by YouTube. I watched a trailer and I said to myself that this is not the usual action movie. The music composed by Cliff Martinez was not a match for just an action movie, so I said to myself that this must be something different.
Yet it was something different that triggered my desire to watch this movie. There were some electropop tunes in one of the tracks that reminded me of the sound of Sinnerman by One Two Three Cheers and A Tiger featuring Lana Sharp, the song that I will always link with The Dark Valley (Das Finstere Tal). Vincent Pierre Claude Belorgey, known as Kavinsky is the composer of Nightcall, the song that triggered my interest for Drive.
How about listening to these two songs again, then comparing the actions in Drive and The Dark Valley? I’ll be curious about your opinion!
