Video of the Day: Drive: Peak Fascist AestheticVideo of the Day
In the latest episode of Guide to Kulchur, Ty E and Fróði Midjord discuss Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive (2011), about the very Indo-European-looking “Driver” (Ryan Gosling) who is forced into a conflict with Jewish gangsters as he’s trying to help a, likewise blonde, single mom who has a child with a Mexican criminal. The film has stirred up so much controversy that one Jewish YouTuber named it “a new Mein Kampf” because of its portrayal of ethnic archetypes.
The episode is archived on BitChute (video) and Spreaker (audio only). Guide to Kulchur streams live on YouTube and DLive Tuesdays at 2:00 PM Eastern Time / 20:00 CET, and Ty E joins the show every fortnight to discuss cinema. Their next conversation will be focused on Come and See (1985).

Hugh MacDonald, “An Amateur History of Halloween”
Note the Jewish Star which frames the brutal Jewish gangster Bernie before his kosher (ritual) slaughter of Bryan Cranston’s character.
The legal entity behind Drive was sued by a woman who argued the film’s trailer was misleading, and hides the fact that (the lawsuit alleges) Drive is an anti-Semitic film. See here.
Further complicating things is that the film is based on a screenplay by Hossein Amini, an Iranian-British screenwriter and film director. According to Wikipedia: Amini’s screenplay for the film “is a loose adaptation of the novel of the same name by James Sallis. During interviews, Refn noted that he and Amini cut out a lot of the content from Sallis’ book, resulting in the almost bare bones structure for the film, and the few lines of dialogue for the film’s star, Ryan Gosling.”
The book is significantly different, less obvious in it’s ethic concerns. A much better example of Refns deep unease with clown world suicide, is Too Old to Die Young.
Very good pick up about the star! I missed that. The two gangsters represent the two professional guys.
Did you guys think the other gangster, the worse of the two, looked a lot like Epstein? I did. They are very good at casting people who look like other people, I can certainly attest. This similarity may not have been coincidental.
where can i find more stuff by TY E? whats the name of his website?
