Drive My Car

Drive My Car ★★★★½

From the offset, it's clear that Hamaguchi is a modern master. Not a single minute went by where I felt like he was wasting any time with the narrative, and his shot composition is just wonderful. Definitely someone I'll be watching more of in 2022.

A film about how difficult it is to grieve. Each of the main characters have a type of grief that they feel they have to hide from others, in fear of being seen differently. From Yüsuke not wanting to tell Oto that he knew about her infidelity, to both him and Misaki not telling each other about their personal lives to not be judged by the other.

A masterwork
