“Drive My Car” is a tough pill to swallow. When you look up the definition of a slow burn in the dictionary, it shows you this movie. “Drive My Car” is a very rewarding watch, and it may be the most well-made film out of all of the nominations. However, you have to be emotionally prepared for a three-hour, foreign-language drama about grief and loss.
This movie could potentially be another dark horse candidate for Best Picture, but I would not put my money on it.
