Baby Driver [2017]

Directed by Edgar Wright, ‘Baby Driver’ tells the story of ‘Baby’, a talented getaway driver who executes illegal tasks for his crime boss while listening to music. As baby tries to escape this irregular lifestyle, he finds his life, love and freedom threatened by the failure of a robbery.

From the first minute of the film, I fell in love and was captivated by the action. But honestly, the one thing I loved the most in this film is the sound design; it is amazing how they just played around with the sound and turned it into a sort of tune [tapping of foot for example, or person talking]. The music is also on point and it takes a look back at famous classic songs such as ‘Brighton rock’ by Queen or ‘B-A-B-Y’ by Carla Thomas.

Moreover, I loved how the action and editing are synchronized with the sound, it makes the movie even more exciting. And even though, the blocking is specifically staged to follow the music, it looks very realistic and genuine.

Other than that, I loved the action, it is very intense and the car race is breathtaking, it kept me at the edge of my seat [I enjoyed it more than in Fast and Furious]

Concerning the story, it is somehow cheesy and cliché but there is a lot of depth and a lot of creativity in the development of characters [there is a lot of minor details that said a lot about a character]. Talking about characters, ‘Baby’ is such a lovable and unique character that you can relate to and honestly, Ansel Elgort portrayed him just amazingly. I really think Ansel outdone himself with this role, I was very impressed by his performance.

Another thing that I loved is the humor; it was so genuine, smart and unexpected, they also did not overdo it [take in consideration that I don’t laugh easily]

To conclude, I think ‘Baby Driver’ is a big hit, I really enjoyed it and it’s probably the best commercial films that got released this year so far, so go watch it.

            Listen, I got some strange weird poems that I write. A lot of which you’ll have to use the Google dictionary to make sense of what you’ve read. I’ll say this – you’ll leave your head scratching after reading my poems. 🙂 If interested, hope you stop by and read, comment, and I’ll reply back. 🙂

            I like having good discussions and conversation with my readers. 🙂
