Luke’s review published on Letterboxd:
I’ve been trying for the last several hours to try piece this whole film together in my mind, but, to be honest, I don’t think there’s much else to it than watching the lives and tales of a well-developed cast of interrelated characters all panning out in the small space of a red Saab. Thus, Drive My Car is deeply intimate and wholly reserved but manages to take liberty in the few opportunities it crafts to hit the audience with a strong stroke of emotion. There’s so much happening in this film; love and art and passion and sex and guilt and grief and friendship; all weaving together in such a beautiful way, a way that is only loosely connected, but all the better for it. I think I still need a bit more time to let this movie marinate, but once it does, I will get back to you all.
