Baby Driver ★★★★

THE POSITIVES
+ the synchronized soundtrack to the actions (obviously! this is a very lukewarm take but i still gotta mention it because it's THAT GOOD of a technique)
+ love that deaf representation!! 
+ sky ferreira 
+ made me forget i hate ansel elgort

THE NEGATIVES
- if only the characters' decisions were synchronized with their motivations 👀
- uncomfy gender/racial politics (just ONCE i'd like to see a heist movie where women are more than just love interests. can't wait for Oceans Eight!) 
- not enough sky ferreira
- made me forget i hate ansel elgort

BONUS
+++ THE 3 SECOND CLIP OF BRAD PITT IN FIGHT CLUB

VERDICT
for 2 full hours this movie made me forget about how my beloved cat has been missing for a full day and ... that's honestly extremely impressive. thank you mr. baby driver


EDIT: this story has a happy ending & my cat has been found :) now i have to rewatch when this burden isn't in the back of my mind haha
