Last Night in Soho
Last Night in Soho: Directed by Edgar Wright. With Thomasin McKenzie, Aimee Cassettari, Rita Tushingham, Colin Mace. An aspiring fashion designer is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters a dazzling wannabe singer. But the glamour is not all it appears to be and the dreams of the past start to crack and splinter into something darker.
From all the trailers and marketing that I had vaguely seen out of the corners of my eyes, I had the impression this was going to be a fabulous story of the 60’s with dancing and singing. We did get that action, but boy was I wrong on all my other expectations. Ultimately this is a through and through horror film that wears it’s creepiness behind a very well made personal journey of a young woman wanting more from the world than I think it can offer. Edgar Wright does some very nice work with the camera and sets up some very captivating scenes with some tricks that I found inventive and unique, he’s really grown as a director and I look forward to seeing more from him.
