Last Night In Soho (2021) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Legendary British filmmaker Edgar Wright teaming with hot as the sun Anya Taylor-Joy in a follow up to two of their best received projects (Wright for Baby Driver, Taylor-Joy for The Queen’s Gambit)… sounds like a bit of a no brainer right? Well it is. Kinda.  The odd thing about Last Night In Soho is that, for the first 20+ minutes at least, I was actually quite bored. Thomasin McKenzie’s performances ranged from distracting to urm… huh WTF? But as the film settled in so did I and the as the story unfolded, with a bunch of clever turns and spooky moments, I found myself liking it more and more. Wright does a good job as always and the film looks and sounds gorgeous (Wright really does use music better than almost any other director). Last Night In Soho is original, interesting and memorable.  It just takes a while to settle in.

Best Bit: Soho looks creepy

Cinema, Stream, Avoid: Cinema

If You Liked this Try: Baby Driver, The Queen’s Gambit (TV), Shaun of The Dead
