Last Night in Soho

Last Night in Soho ★★★½

Last Night in Soho remains a spastic cinematic treat as per usual from Edgar Wright, but the story's lofty ambitions do tend to stumble from the weight of its themes from time to time. It takes empathy to properly tackle themes regarding the exploitation of women and though the good intentions are clear, Wright's tendency to mix them with his usual flair leaves the impact of the story a bit muddled.

All of this would be incredibly disappointing were it not for the rocking performances (Diana Rigg lowkey steals the show) and the sheer bonkers mix of lurid nightmare horror and pitch black comedy you've come to expect from Wright's movies. Even one of his weakest efforts demonstrates a level of cinematic understanding that few directors achieve at the peak of their careers. More of this, flaws and all!
