friend suggested I watch Drive (2002) directed by Sabu and made references to Quentin Tarantino. I can see some similarities in violence and humor, as well as the episodic nature of this film calls to mind Pulp Fiction. This film about a salaryman office worker (Shinichi Tsutsumi gives a impressive performance) getting his car hijacked by bank robbers is a bit over the top withe the humor and has many fantastical elements that make it original but far from the more grounded in reality of Tarantino. I guess I found those fantastical elements necessary and distracting. However, there were enough positive elements in the film to interest me in seeing more films by Sabu.
