MÁRC’s review published on Letterboxd:
Drive My Car is a slow and methodical film that takes its time with every scene. For me, it was the monologue right before the ending that made me realise just how purposeful everything I had seen before was. It just clicked. I haven’t seen an exploration of grief this thoughtful or complex in a film before and it’s impactful. I can already tell this has a delayed fuze and I’ll be feeling this tomorrow at the most random time. Super somber film. The writing is superb and explores its ideas to the fullest through great monologues and character dynamics. The cast is talented enough to deliver every line of dialogue with the emotion I imagine it was written with, especially the lead and the driver. The middle of the film does drop a little in quality which really lets down a strong beginning and end.
