Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver (2017) was my film of the year when it came out. After multiple viewings, and writing an essay on its use of soundtrack, this action-packed thrill ride is a spectacle to watch. Familiar with his work on the “Cornetto Trilogy” (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz & The World’s End) and cult comic adaptation Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Wright is recognisable for his use of rapid editing, breakneck pacing and visually vibrant colour pallete.
With a plethora of videos online discussing the use of editing, costume and cinematography of the film, Baby Driver has become one of the most talked about movies of the last few years. Let’s find out why.
