Dennehy gives one of his finest performances, in a life smashed full of them, here -- the quiet camaraderie that he and Cody develop becomes, before you even realize it, a lifeline for the both of them.

Driveways may not linger in your mind beyond the final credits but nonetheless it's a warm and friendly affair that offers a pleasant diversion from the norm.

"I wish I took the time to take a good look at stuff," Del explains... He's talking about relishing what's in front of you before it's gone, a kernel of wisdom for those watching Dennehy's final, deeply moving performance.

Driveways is the sort of quiet film that you might initially overlook, but that would be a mistake...a story of sweet, subtle affection and dignity, led by an incredible performance from a man who gave us so many incredible performances.

Natural, moving performances are the hallmark of this low-key, heartfelft film.

Driveways is small, bittersweet and kind. Chau and Dennehy give lovely but understated, unshowy performances.

It'll make you think about your own relationship with your family, for better or worse, and it'll make you reconsider how you treat the people in your life on a day to day basis.

"Driveways" shows us the power of caring human relationships and the change love can bring, yet painfully unfurls the precariousness of life.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
May 11, 2020
Lovingly told, "Driveways" is an exploration in the pivotal moments in one's life.
June 23, 2020
Quite a feat for an 83-minute character study that, I assure you, is small only in size...
March 3, 2020
Impeccably acted observational drama with reverberations of Kenneth Lonergan's You Can Count on Me and Lynch's The Straight Story.

...Ahn maintains and deepens his empathy, his patience and his understanding that pain is often something you live with, not just experience.
May 8, 2020
Driveways embraces and delivers its sentimentality with heart.

In Ahn's America, outsider experiences of race and sexuality are treated as mundane norms, while the mundane activities of suburban normalcy become their own eccentric journeys. A trip to the supermarket is an opportunity to accept mortality.

Driveways doesn't necessarily provide answers, but it looks to find solace in decisions, with the lives we choose to leave, and the relationships we forge.
February 12, 2019
Ahn guides his gentle second feature with a measured hand, but he and his adorable kid protagonist can't jolt the sleepy narrative out of its familiar comfort zone.
Full Review | Original Score: B-

Driveways tugs at hearts in the best possible way, quietly and introspectively as it builds its narrative one well-observed moment after the other.

What resonates is the movie's understanding of how we come and go through life, of how a house becomes a home, of how even the smallest acts of kindness can open doors that never quite close.
July 24, 2020
[This] gentle and sweetly endearing...tale of a lonely eight-year-old boy who befriends the elderly Korean War vet next door is defiantly positive; a big wet kiss on the lips of a world that normalizes cynicism and celebrates conflict.

Chau is a vibrant presence, expanding a series of scattered notes into a character who's not haunted by regret but who hasn't come by resolution easily.
