2017 | DIR. EDGAR WRIGHT | REVIEW BY GLENN COCHRANE.
Director Edgar Wright is morphing into a pop culture icon and his films have become events with legions of devoted fans chomping at the bit for a piece of the action. His presence in the film world (and the fandom that follows him) rests somewhere in between Quentin Tarantino’s rockstar magnetism and Kevin Smith’s flagrant stoner bait. His latest film, Baby Driver, is a high-octane heist film that wears its influences on its sleeve and makes no apologies for exploiting the genre.
