DRIVE ★★★★

Drive is a film that has aged quite gracefully. Stylistically it's clear this is a film from a bygone era, but Tanaka's superb sense of humor, several stand-out performances and a couple of very memorable scenes make Drive worth your while. It's an extremely solid entry in Tanaka's rich oeuvre and it's a shame this film isn't more readily available for people who might be interested. I had a lovely time revisiting Drive and I really hope there will come a day when I can finally plug this hole in my collection. Well recommended, if you can find the film that is.
