Praised by critics and audiences, this summer’s “cinematic highlight” Baby Driver is playing in Sarajevo’s Cinema City from this week. Stylish, exciting and fueled by a killer soundtrack, Baby Driver hits the road and it’s gone – proving fast-paced action movies can be smartly written without sacrificing thrills.
The story centers on a talented getaway driver who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.
“At its core, Baby Driver recalls decades of movies that anchored their narratives on criminals and the art of the car chase. There’s a remarkably old-fashioned sensibility to the way (director Edgar) Wright structures and details his film, and it’s not just because his two genetically blessed stars look like they could have walked out of a 1940s noir (their All-American aesthetic is even more striking in a few gorgeous black-and-white shots that recall old Hollywood even more). Baby Driver is a high-concept film that never underwhelms detail, and it’s those charming little beats within the overall tune that hold it together,” wrote Brian Tallerico.
