Mark S Allen sits down with Jon Hamm, Ansel Elgort and Jamie Foxx to talk all things Baby Driver. As stated in the interview, Mark really enjoyed this movie and I can’t argue with him one bit.
I absolutely loved this movie! The punchy soundtrack that is syncronised beautifully with everything seen on screen. The insane action sequences and violence whilst still keeping a romance movie at the heart of it’s plot.
The car chases certainly have zip and panache and are frequently howl-out-loud-exciting; credit the invaluable cinematographer Bill Pope (The Matrix Trilogy, Army of Darkness) and rambunctious editors Jonathan Amos and Paul Machliss for giving this movie a serious dose of primary color sexiness and in-your-face-attitude; you have to love how the visuals are cued up with the sound-effects all throughout this movie, to say nothing of the opening stedicam shot which is worth the ticket price alone, and one of many constant surprises.
Peppered with star names including the three guys below, Baby Driver is one of those movies that deserves to be popular. For the simple fact that it’s not a sequel or a remake. If Baby Driver does well it will give studios a much needed push to create original content. To take a risk on new stories and plots and create unique movies rather than your run of the mill, same old, same old.
If only Tony Scott were alive to see this clever mix of bleeding-heart romanticism with bloody violence. And for the kicker — it’s not exactly the movie they are selling in the ads. Sure, you get all the car chases and shoot-outs that were promised by that absolutely amazing theatrical trailer, but there’s more here that they haven’t let on about, and I’m not going to spoil any of it.
