    Last Night in Soho

    ★★½

    A lopsided, deceptively glamorous, visually extravagant ghost story that digs up the 60s back from the grave.

    Last Night in Soho gets off to a great start and feels like a fresh breath of air from Edgar Wright's hyperactive mind. The visuals add up to a glossy sheen that's difficult not to enjoy. The sets, the costumes, the vivid colours, the swirling camerawork - Wright's flair for theatrics and cinematographic fun pays off here. The editing is also mostly sharp.…

    ★★★★★

    Otherworldly cinema that transports you into a familiar and yet wholly alien place, where a bleak, brutish sort of humanity is laid bare across 3 mesmerizing hours. This is a film unlike any other.

    It was apparent from the first stretch of the film that this experience will be intensely devoted to delivering a unique and up-close journey into the dark age of an alien world. The camerawork bringing you in as an intimate observer and a passive sort of…
