Drive My Car

Drive My Car ★★★★½

"It didn't sound like he was lying. I don't know if it's the truth, but he was telling you what was true to him."

Fucking hell this destroyed me emotionally. A rather unwieldy slow burn that didn't fully grab me at first, but as the story progressed it revealed the necessity of every seemingly irrelevant detail in the first half. I went from thinking "Yeah it's a good movie that needed to shave down that 40 minute prologue" to "Holy shit, this is a masterclass in subtle dramatic payoffs" by the end. Please stick with this movie if it doesn't click with you at first; it's a long slow drive, but it's absolutely worth it to get to the destination.
