Do you remember the last time you had to sit through a gruelling hour and a half of bad cinema just because it was a movie about cars? Gearheads are often denied the simple pleasures of a good story and compelling performances. Yet, there are tales of glorious cars and legendary drivers littered throughout the history of motorsport. Following are tales of ambition, passion and tragedy, which artfully demonstrate the love of man and machine.

Drive is dark and captivating, often touted as one of the best movies to come out in 2011. It is a throwback to the noir films of the 1950s and ‘60s. Ryan Gosling plays the protagonist, an unnamed stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver. Drive won its Danish director Nicholas Refn the Best Director Award at Cannes. It even received an Academy Award for Best Sound Editing, and four British Academy Film Award nominations. Fun fact: Ryan Gosling wears a jacket with a scorpion on it, a reference to the animal fable about the frog and the scorpion, which is also referenced by the villain near the end of the movie.
