Will resonate most with audiences that skew young, hip, and, like its helmer and its hero (the latter played by baby-faced “The Fault in Our Stars” star Ansel Elgort), more than a little obsessive.
Whenever Elgort’s Baby is behind the wheel, this movie is a ballet of stylish automotive mayhem — but the minute everyone gets out, things quickly slump into stereotypes. One last job, really?
An awe-inspiring piece of filmmaking from Edgar Wright that plays out as a musical through the lens of an action thriller. Sweet, funny and utterly original — you won’t see a film like it this year.
This is not a philosophy of criminology, or a new pathology of antisocial behavior, but it makes for a terrific night at the movies.
In Baby Driver, Baby passes by a man arguing with his business partner on the phone, who is late for their meeting. When Baby is walking back with the coffees, the same man can be seen scolding his partner to be on time.
