Velkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome.
This week we discuss one of our very favorite directors, Edgar Wright! With Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost having completed their Cornetto Trilogy this past weekend with The World’s End (It’s great, you should go see it), we discuss Wright’s other works, and generally what makes his high-energy style tick. Along the ride, there are lots of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it jokes and hidden bits of symbolism that make Wright’s style unique and infinitely re-watchable.
So Join the Club in our tribute to Edgar Wright!
