Gorgeous and sonically kinetic tribute to London’s swinging 60’s. A major step forward for Edgar Wright as an artist and a storyteller in that it is a tribute but not a love letter. Edgar familiarity celebrates the music but doesn’t fetishize the era and in fact ventures into legitimate horror to expose the ugly side of one of the fabled points in time and space.
Dark, surreal, and at times genuinely scary, all building to a formidable climax.
So happy this was the first secret screening of Fantastic Fest!
