Top 10 moments in recent film history
#8) He's going to need a new pair of shoes. Drive was something special and will probably go down as one of the classics of the film noir genre, its slow burn pacing, it's incredible acting, but it will probably be known for one extremely iconic image. The Driver in an effort to save the woman he loves commits many acts of violence, but none are to be topped by the now famous "head stomping" scene. In an act that may be considered a cross between desperation, vengeance, and self-defense, the driver smashes an assassins head against the elevator throws him back into the corner and proceeds to stomp on his head until it caves in. If that doesn't make an iconic moment then I don't know what does. Yes it may be iconic because of the violence, but there is also a lot of emotion in that scene, and you don't even have to look that hard.
