Drive

(R) ★★★☆☆

This avenging-angel thriller begins well and ends in a muddle. Ryan Gosling plays Driver, a loner stunt/getaway driver. The superb Carey Mulligan plays a waitress who lives down the hall from Driver and whose husband is due out of prison soon. How Driver becomes part of a troubled family unit, and how he becomes the target of mobsters (Albert Brooks, Ron Perlman) form the crisscrossing roads of the narrative.

With seven resident Cirque du Soleil shows on the Strip, it’s easy to think that our city has the monopoly on Canadian acrobats. But outside state lines, Cirque offers a whopping 15 more shows. The most Vegas-esque of them all, Zarkana, recently found its way to New York City’s iconic Radio City Music Hall. But it won’t stay long. Fortunately, this short primer will leave you just enough time to buy plane tickets.
