Baby Driver ★★★★

straight up the most fun i've had in a movie theater since MAGIC MIKE XXL. like an 113-minute version of those year-end video things i make, but, ya know… actually art, and not just legwork. can't *quite* shake the feeling that this was $20 million short of being a masterpiece (just as i'm having a little trouble making sense of how this movie doesn't end with a car chase), but this is still exactly the kind of shot in the arm that mid-budget studio filmmaking needs.
