With an (almost) unprecedented near-perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes (98%), Baby Driver is the summer smash surprise to drop in Europe this month. Directed by Edgar Wright, who made pop-culture classics like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Baby Driver tells the story of a young getaway driver who finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail. Empire Magazine called it an awe-inspiring piece of filmmaking, and Film Journal said it’s fueled by a retro soundtrack and an anarchic spirit, like Drive on speed. Consider us sold.
To get in the mood, enjoy the high-speed chase scene from the movie Ronin. Rumour has it, that Baby Driver has a better one. And those are pretty tough shoes to fill.
