How Edgar Wright kept 'Baby Driver' moving to the music; opens Wednesday

Wright added that although he has a writing credit on the final film and he's close friends with Rudd, he has "zero regrets about not doing the movie", and he has no desire to see the final cut. Only a handful of directors can pull it off, through a combo of great taste and tremendous visual confidence. The writer-director Edgar Wright, a major record-head, might appreciate this comparison: He makes movies out of ideas that are too insane to make movies out of. With his flat affect, black shades and music-pumping earbuds (to drown out his trauma-induced tinnitus), Baby seems a bit like The Who's Tommy, only he's a wizard with a wheel and a hand brake. The reason is because he created Baby Driver, which is absolutely awesome in every way. Wright, the visionary behind "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" and "Shaun of the Dead", made a decision to set much of the movie to music - not just in the sense of a traditional soundtrack, but in that the visuals of the film would exactly match the beats of the songs pumping through Baby's head.

And then go see Baby Driver a second time, maybe three or four days later, once it's marinated into your state of being, and you find yourself only wanting to talk about it with your friends who for whatever reason still haven't seen it??? And a superbly villainous Jon Hamm shows there's more to his post-Mad Men career than H&R Block ads.

"I have not spoken to him at all", Wright said. "I can't wait to tell you about that joint 'Baby Driver!' It's insane, it's cool, and it ain't a typical film", the 49-year-old actor said. Baby is looking for a way out of the life of crime and has to complete one last job to earn his freedom.

"Who doesn't like a good auto chase?" That might be part of the point, but it makes the movie's extended climax, with Baby and Debora in danger from crime boss Doc (Kevin Spacey) and his associates, hard to care much about.

What will Monaco sensation Thomas Lemar bring to Arsenal?
Losing him to rivals Arsenal would be a big blow, especially as the Gunners are unable to offer Champions League football. Also, Lemar was only behind Falcao, Valere Germain and Mbappe for the most number of shots per game.

At the diner where Baby hangs out, he begins to fall for waitress Deborah, played by Lily James.

Ansel Elgort as Baby in "Baby Driver".

"Baby Driver" begins with a bang, a showstopper of an opening number reminiscent of the ecstatic traffic jam in "La La Land", only this time with the cars themselves as the dancers. Rounding out the crime ring is Jon Hamm as the punk-coiffed Buddy and Eiza Gonzalez as his shark-eyed partner Darling; Jon Bernthal and Flea pop in briefly, too. Doc respects Baby's vehicular mastery and considers him an invaluable asset, but he isn't above resorting to threats to get what he wants.
