"It's so good to be able to do something different. It was a real rush to be able to step out of a traditional female director's role and do something that is very testosterone driven."
-- Mina Shum
Quotes about Drive, She Said
"The conventionality of Drive, She Said in terms of plot affected its reception. Critics decried its reliance on the caper film as a means of exploring a woman's self-actualization."
-- Brenda Austin-Smith
"Mina Shum's audacious second feature is a stylistic leap that stretches her skills as a director and tests the patience of even the most tolerant audience."
-- John Haslett Cuff
