Taxi drivers beware. Certain passengers may bring trouble.
In Drive All Night, this indie thriller has a taxi driver (Who still uses taxis?) picking up a woman for various activities in the middle of the night with a hitman in pursuit.
The movie stars Yutaka Takeuchi (Marvel’s The Defenders) and Sarah Dumont (Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse).
Here’s the official synopsis:
Drive All Night follows Dave (Yutaka Takeuchi), a reclusive swing-shift taxi driver, whose night takes an unexpected turn after he picks up a mysterious passenger, Cara (Lexy Hammonds), a young woman hiding a dark secret. As she makes him drive through the city on a series of bizarre excursions, things get increasingly more surreal the further into the night they go.
Dumont plays the waitress at the diner that Dave often frequents, while Johnny Gilligan plays Lenny, an obsessive hitman guided by strange visions, who pursues our protagonists through the night.

Pete Hsieh makes his directorial debut with the film. He is most known for staged plays that have been workshopped and produced in theaters across the country, including Nylon Fusion, Hollywood Fringe, and the Asian American Theatre Company.
“I wanted to develop a complex and layered narrative that became increasingly more dream-like and surreal as the story developed. My goal is to take the audience down the rabbit hole on a fever dream trip through wonderland and hopefully have them come out the other side both baffled and entertained,” said Hsieh.
The film makes its world premiere at the Cinequest Film Festival from March 20-30 later this month. For ticket information, visit www.cinequest.org.
