Edgar Wright is one of the best directors working today. He is the Millenial answer to Quentin Tarantino, a pop culture saturated savant that is able to craft wholly unique narratives out of 100’s of other building blocks. Edgar is so unique and fresh a voice that we had to import him over from the UK. And the fact that his work hasn’t connected in a broad audience way until recently hasn’t stopped him from trucking along, his talent so obvious to anyone who meets him that he was always gonna be working.
What’s even more amazing is that he has yet to make a bad movie, seemingly getting better every time he makes a film. Even if the story itself isn’t as fresh as his others, his filmmaking just gets more on point as he gets older. One just has to look at his latest movie, “Baby Driver”, to see that. Is it as original as his debut? No, it is definitely more indebted to his influences that his other movies. But all of the technical aspects have just been executed to perfection, making audiences just dizzy with excitement.
And it’s nice to know that even with massive setback/disappointment of leaving “Ant-Man”, he was able to bounce back with an excellent genre exercise that shows him at peak performance. In honor of his newest cinematic victory, it seems to be a perfect time to take a look back at his career of media savvy mastery.
5. The World’s End
It’s not that this is a bad movie. It’s just that it has one of the most unearned third acts in recent memory. The entire the run time, the movie is setting → continue…
