    On the strength of Drive, I watched Nicolas Winding Refn's Bronson this week, an art house biopic about Charlie Bronson, Britain's most violent/famous inmate. As with Drive, it makes wonderful use of music and is about as atypical of its genre (the prison film) as Refn could make it. This is a film about a man who wants to stay in prison, a man who, through violence and solitude, metamorphoses into an artist. He's a bare-knuckle-fighting Oscar Wilde. And brilliantly played by Tom Hardy too. Though sourced from a true story (and Bronson is still alive and still incarcerated), the film is an anarchic dark comedy full of flights of fancy, handling narration (which I usually dislike in films) into a bonkers theatrical conceit. There are some slow bits here and there, but mostly, it's a fascinating character study of an extreme personality. 4 years 2 months ago

    Great performance by Hardy. I enjoyed watching this movie and learning about the life of Her Majesty's most violent criminal. 6 years 8 months ago
