'DRIVE' Cancelled in Malaysia
SEPT 24, 2011 – DRIVE will not be released in Malaysia after all. Its distributor, Nusantara Edaran Filem, said its release in Malaysia has been cancelled due to some 'technical problems'.
Drive, which stars Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan, was scheduled to be released last Thursday. Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, it was adapted from James Sallis' 2005 crime novel about an unnamed Hollywood stunt driver (Gosling) who also drives getaway cars at night. The screenplay was by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Hossein Amini.
The film has been critically acclaimed, rating 8.4/10 at IMDB and scoring 93 per cent with critics at Rotten Tomatoes. My review is here.
