Fifth about The Seventh

Baby Driver

Baby Driver: Edgar Wright’s film displays a tremendous level of energy from beginning to end, never ceasing to entertain. The story, in its basic elements, is far from new, but this is a good evidence that the way a story is told is almost as important as the story itself. The main character, very well-played by Ansel Elgort, brings quite a bit of freshness to it and makes a very charming couple with Lily James. The whole cast is interesting and in very fine shape. The wall-to-wall soundtrack is diverse, fun (it goes from Dave Brubeck to Tequila, stopping everywhere in between), and a major reason why this works so well (supported by the fact that it makes sense within the story). Editors Jonathan Amos and Paul Machliss’ work is a wonder: they cut the small moments to the music, and the action scenes in a very exciting way.
