Director Edgar Wright, known for hilarious Simon Pegg collaborations including "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz", enters Danny Boyle and Guy Ritchie territory, with a dose of Ben Wheatley (the warehouse shootout is pure "Free Fire"), while managing to avoid the overt violence and gore of Tarantino. "I like it when people have memorized the lines and then are open to interpretation beyond that", he says. Also stars Adam Pally and Fred Armisen.
Wright dresses like a hip businessman, but fanboy-franchise blood flows in his veins. It's a spin on classic wheels "n" steals caper pics like Smokey and the Bandit, The Italian Job, Grand Theft Auto and other fleet flicks that left skid marks on Wright's youthful psyche.
The blistering action film stars Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx. In the ensuing chase, this synthesis of on-screen movement, editing, and musical timing coalesces into a balletic tour de force, complete with wry visual gags like Baby hiding among cars of a similar color and make on the highway so as to dupe a police helicopter.
"I feel like every stop I made had one of those 1950s diners like in the film", he says. But that didn't deter me. I remember him talking to me like an equal. "In LA you just sit and get sunburnt in a convertible".
Who did you talk to?
"Yeah, I love making movies". George Miller is The Man! "(But) I couldn't imagine anyone else doing this role.
"I didn't get to meet any real getaway drivers, but we did meet up with someone who robbed, like, 15 separate banks".
"But after The World's End I did work on it for like a year, I was gonna make the movie". However, Wright's departure from Ant-Man did have an upside for the director.as it led to his passion project, Baby Driver. And you've got songs from multiple generations, from the boomers on down.

"Music has become a thing that I can stay creative with".
Wright had the idea for the movie when he was 22 while listening to "Bellbottoms", a insane, driving rock number by the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. I just loved musical theatre. It's writer-director Wright's most flawless film, and it's doubtful that any other studio films released this summed could hope to clear Baby Driver's ludicrously high set bar. Also, I felt the epilogue was a odd combination of realistic and unrealistic - not quite the euphoric air-punching finale I was hoping for after two hours of build-up. It felt like the soundtrack to my life and, once I cranked those tunes and the camera rolled, I felt unstoppable. "I loved all that graffiti and stuff".
Are you ready to be driven wild by Ansel Elgort's Baby Driver?
CJ also made an appearance on the red carpet and used an interpreter to explain how he gave the 23-year-old tips during the shoot so the young actor could "put it in his soul".
It's a pretty by-the-numbers story that has its fair share of turns, but that's totally fine: the story acts purely as a vehicle (eyoo) for some of the best set-pieces I've seen all year.
"Eventually, I hope I can have a career that's uncategorisable. I'd think, 'This would be the flawless auto chase song in a movie, but what's the movie?'" Doc has plans for his good luck charm, Baby. That Baby's partners in crime are the permanently wired Buddy (Jon Hamm) and the downright psychotic Bats (Jamie Foxx) means that the entire plan is constantly on a knife-edge. "You could definitely tell when Edgar was tickled".
I would never rule anything out. "I thought: What a waste". Elgort is wildly enthusiastic about acting and music but singularly unimpressed with himself, a modesty that makes the New Yorker stand out in a place like Hollywood.
I like it on a cultural level. It was a magical time.
