Runtime: 113 minutes
Starring: Ansel Elgort, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, Lily James, Kevin Spacey
Director: Edgar Wright
After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail.
Baby Driver is something of the perfect vehicle for [director] Edgar Wright's filmmaking techniques. By mixing up musical styles and genres and setting the action to each accordingly, he proves that, as a filmmaker, he is a classicist in his inspirations, but a full-throttled progressive in his execution. Baby Driver is both cool like a 70s thriller, and alive like a modern popular track. While it is often tense and coarse, occasionally rather violent, and does not always affirm good in the ways we imagine, Baby Driver is a magnificent entertainment.
