So I was really enjoying this movie, engrossed in its atmosphere and characters, and especially loved the car. I loved the car so much that I almost cried with joy when I remembered that the title of this film was "Drive My Car". Because I loved the film so much, I foolishly assumed that the title was accurate and decided to call Mr. Hamaguchi to request to drive the car. I never got through to him despite numerous attempts but…
Now I have yet to see this film, so I do not have complete Intel surrounding this film, but there are two major issues with this title. First, on an objective basis, I had heard from a friend (looked it up myself to make sure), that there is no licorice, pizza or a combination of those two. For that alone, this is obviously 1/10 for the inaccuracy, but on a personal basis this film has also caused me hell.
A user warned me about this one, and I should've heeded it. Maybe this was a sick practical joke from Scorsese (wouldn't be surprised), or maybe something worse. Maybe Scorsese has a warped psychotic perception of reality where he does in fact believe these are "Good fellas." I think most people would agree that they are pretty mean, but Scorsese might not be most people. I don't like jumping to conclusions, but I will say I if Scorsese was walking towards me, I'd throw 8 year old Jesse to the other side of the street. Better safe than sorry!
I love you Mr. Shyamalan but I was able to easily snap the blue ray disc in half, proving that this film is breakable. Just to make sure it wasn't just my unbelievable strength, I bought another disc and had 8 year old Jesse give it a try (not to suggest 8 year old Jesse isn't strong he's been doing great during his Karate lessons just so you know). He too was able to snap it with ease. A damn shame really.
