Cinema Cindy Reviews: Baby Driver

“Baby Driver” was released on June 28th and has been getting some great reviews ever since. The title may distract from the theme, but think of Paul Simon’s famous tune of the same name and you get the picture.

This is a combination heist flick and hot pursuit action film, directed by Edgar Wright. The soundtrack is a marvelous compilation of popular/rock mood and motivational tunes. The best thing about this film is the way it was edited so that the beat of Baby’s tunes punctuates and choreographs the action.
