Save review as draft
I want to write more reviews to contribute more, but I need time, and since there is no way of saving drafts before publishing a review, I keep dropping reviews all together instead of writing something half assed. Writing reviews locally in a text editor up front doesn't work for me, I simply find it to big of a hassle. This is just a fun hobby after all, not serious business :)
Please use a private list for this, as suggested by Tyler D, until we can are able to add it.
I see this is under review, but I'd like to chime in with another point not yet made. I write my diary entries as soon as possible, to capture my immediate reactions and observations. I periodically have technical problems which lead to me losing everything I've written. On more than one occasion, this has happened after writing a substantial amount which, because I'm writing so immediately, I've forgotten in my rush to record everything. It is... inconvenient.

@Tyler D. That's a great idea. I would still love the draft feature, but that's a good work-around.

Same, old suggestion but still relevant. Drafts are multifaceted. users can use them as a form of taking notes while watching as well. saves us the extra step of having to copy it over from the Notes app.

I see this is a rather old suggestion, but I would find this helpful as well.
Currently, as an alternative, I have a private listed for "Pending Reviews" that I use in order to work on my reviews. I add a film to the list, write the review under the "Notes" section, then publish it once it is finalized.

I think this is a great idea (after taking three days to finish my Son of Saul review).
I realised how much I needed a draft option when I had to write my review for 12 Years A Slave. It's a movie one has to mull over and I couldn't really sit down and write the whole thing in one go.
Letterboxd please make this happen!
This should be first on the docket for the Letterboxd crew. It's strange that lists have this capability, but reviews don't.
