Unlike in Thief where the MC is a Jew who voluntarily enters into a business arrangement with and gets swindled by another Jew and then goes on a rampage, and the film promotes vaguely Marxist motifs about labor exploitation and the narrative that "See? Jews do it to other Jews, so we're all in the same boat really", in Drive the MC is a gentile, and rather than entering into dealings with the two Jewish villains on his own volition, circumstances transpire which force him into cooperation and inevitably confrontation with the two Jews (in order to help the other gentiles he cares about). The inevitability of the confrontation in Drive and the resulting violence is presented without any alongside ideology. It offers no reason or explanation for why confrontation between the Jews and gentile MC is inevitable except for simply saying, 'Because that is reality.'
Very transgressive stuff.
