Drive My Car

Drive My Car ★★★½

This Oscar season has nominees with super long runtime, with Drive My Car at 3hrs shy. This Japanese movie is a slow stunner, with the storytelling taking it's time to effectively fuse sensations a viewer might get. Drive My Car is intimate, engrossing and calming; revealing emotional - and literal - journeys of our central characters, peeling off layers of loss and grief and love bit by bit until their heartaches feels like ours. The runtime may be lengthy but your cinematic patience is rewarded with how Drive My Car articulates its purpose.
