"Baby Driver" by Yojimbo

A music-obsessed getaway driver is blackmailed into helping commit an armed robbery but his conscience puts him at odds with the rest of his crew.

Baby Driver is a post-modern heist movie from writer-director Edgar Wright, best known for his work with Simon Pegg on Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz. In fact the film has a similar vibe to their amusing parody of the American action film and the way he cleverly choreographs the onscreen action to the brilliant soundtrack works really well. But where The Cornetto trilogy films felt like a complete experience, there seems to be a fundamental ingredient missing that would have given it the necessary weight and texture to become a truly great film; it's like a musical without the songs, or a comedy without the jokes, or a crime thriller without...

Baby Driver - Review

"Was he slow?"

Just when I thought "Dunkirk" was a surreal movie experience, along comes "Baby Driver". A beautifully directed fast peace film with a mix of comedy and action. Just imagine La La Land, but if it was directed by Michael Mann.

I've been a fan of Edger Wright for awhile, as every film he directs I will watch and support it the best I could.

What Edger managed to pull off in "Baby Driver" should convince film studios or the average audience member, he's one of the most gifted directors alive right now. The stunt driving and the brilliant coordination with each sce...

Baby Driver is a wild ride of fun and style.

Baby Driver is nothing necessarily new in terms of storytelling but it's a fantastic example of how style can have substance at the same time. Edgar Wright directs a smart slick caper with exciting car chases, snappy dialogue, and colorful characters.
Baby (Ansel Elgort) works for a cunning criminal (Spacey) as their crew's getaway driver. Due to a childhood accident, his hearing isn't up to speed but he can hone in his senses to superhuman degree via playing pop music. It's almost as though his whole vehicle becomes in sync with the songs. However, Baby is weary of his dangerous lifestyle and aims to run away with a newly found sweetheart (James). His amiable but violent companions have other plans for him though.
The breezy pace and earnest romance never seem at odds with the casual...
