Added DiffLines:

* CultClassic: As mentioned above, the film slowly became a favorite over the years, and its very popular on places like /tv/, to the point where you'll have a hard time not finding a thread about the film, well over 6 years after its release.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: One propagated by posters on ImageBoards holds that the Driver is actually [[AmbiguousDisorder autistic]], although given the general tenor of content posted on the boards this is in all likelihood intended to be PlayedForLaughs or jabbing at how he doesn't speak much.

** Eventually averted, as word of mouth has made this one of the first, if not ''the'' first true CultClassic of TheNewTens.

* CriticalDissonance: Critics and festival audiences have loved this movie, however its box office success did not reflect the massive internet buzz this generated. Though to be fair, crime movies by Danish directors released by small-time distributors don't make $20 million in two weeks. Just ask the people who distributed ''Film/{{Bronson}}''. To put it into perspective: the film cost $15 million to make. It made just over $76 million. So while it was very much a critical and financial success, it was still expected to do ''much'' better prior to release.

** The [[MemeticMutation memetic song]] with the lyrics "A real human being. And a real hero." gains a prophetic twist when you consider one of [[Film/BladeRunner2049 Ryan Gosling's later roles]]. Not to mention that both movies sees [[spoiler:Gosling's character drowning a villain in the Pacific Ocean, getting into a fight with a knife welding opponent that leaves him seriously injured, before it ends with him [[DiesWideOpen Dying Wide Open]], [[GainaxEnding or at least coming close to it]].]]

Added DiffLines:

** The use of Riz Ortolani "Oh My Love" during the beach scene, and the artful but brutal nature of the violence is highly evocative of Italian {{giallo}} films of the same period.
** The presence of Laurene Landon (of ''ManiacCop'' fame), the synthesizer score, [[{{squick}} squicky violence]], and the gritty, neon-lit cinematography recall the 1980's exploitation films of directors like William Lustig.
