Like Stories of Old : This was fantastic! Gave me some insights that I hadn't thought of (especially the Deb-Mom link). I'm aiming to release my video on Baby Driver this Friday :)

Aaron D : Ah! This was so amazing! After a couple months of not seeing this movie this analysis reminded how fantastic it was! Well done!

Jack's Movie Reviews : Great discussion (as always!) I may have misinterpreted what you were saying around 4 minutes into the video about Baby holding onto the past. Were you suggesting that the reason he becomes involved with Debora is a longing for his mother? If so-SUPER interesting point I never even thought of!

AsHalt : I think Baby is dressed in a way similar to Han Solo as Han is known as a scoundrel, smuggler or aka criminal, but when he's needed he can do the right thing, like in Empire in the Hoth base when Imperial attacked. Also a little reference to the Taoist/Buddhist philosophy of "The Yin and Yang". As you had said, Edgar Wright is a master in subtlety and details. Too bad he didn't managed to direct a Marvel film, hope Marvel would allow him to do at least one of the films...

PauLtus B : No doubt the most under-discussed part of film is the visuals in general, it's a movie but there's so little talk about what makes it a movie.

Muaz Osman : This is deep! Really deep! You're amazing for noticing these subtle details

Entertain The Elk : Your editing is getting scary good. Damn. Stop making me feel like a POS

PauLtus B : To be fair, most comedy directors ARE lazy compared to Edgar Wright.

Hunter C : How tf did I not notice this

Lucky Luke Productions : I was blown away from this video!!

Aidan : I don't want to sound like that guy, but I don't think I've ever related more to a character in a movie than Baby.

Frame by Frame : Hot Fuzz is the pinnacle of his achievement, but Baby Driver is also brilliant. Hot Fuzz gets points automatically just for being SO jam-packed with references, call-backs, and punchlines. Have you ever fired two guns while jumping in the air? No. *Have you ever fired one gun while jumping in the air?*

Film Radar : I watched Baby Driver at least 4 times while making this video, and each viewing made me love it more. While my personal pick for Edgar Wright's best has to be "Hot Fuzz", I'm curious what you guys think! What were your thoughts on Baby Driver? How does it compare to Edgar Wright's other films? Let me know! If you enjoyed this video, please consider becoming a Patron to help fund future content!

Phoebe Louise : Thanks for the costume design appreciation post, it's a massive job that's usually understated.

ponyboy staygold : You're one smart film kid Keep it going Thanks

Not Applicable : Was he slow?

Video Insights : Costume design is extremely important within film language. Costume is connected to character, some of the best iconography of a film is often costuming. Even identical uniform costumes are important, sometimes iconic (think of the Storm troopers from Star Wars). I really enjoy your focus on the intricate various aspects of film, keep up the amazing work. I always look forward to your essays. :-)

Felice Landry : Edgar Wright tweeted about this

ponyboy staygold : I'm leaving you another comment, so that you can get more YouTube traffic

A C : Baby driver was my favorite movie this year. Everyone was so good but it also made realize how good of an actor Jamie foxx is. Also John Hamm is really hot.

Jindorek : Excellent video. I never knew all these channels existed until Baby Driver came out. a happy discovery on my part. Thanks for being Awesome.

Suzie Walsh : Your style of commentary reminds me of nerdwriter

Brendan Boyce : Oh my god that Drive soundtrack... So good.

Harry Allen : Really Interesting video! It's made me re-think how colour is used with in films :)!!!

Alex Beamer : Darling and Buddy --> D and B Debra and Baby--> D and B Any thoughts?

Indian Tech Support Scammer : This is my first video I’ve seen of yours, and I’m already hooked. The way you edit your videos show how much time, effort, and passion you put into them. Bravo my man. 🥂

SageSledge : A fantastic analysis of a brilliant film, videos like this really make me appreciate all the meticulous work that goes into every facet of crafting a movie as detail-centric as this. Great work!

Jake Dorsett : I rarely comment on Youtube videos, but I had to break my silence to say this is an awesome video and I am shocked it doesn't have more views! Just subscribed, will be binging your channel later.

StageLined Productions : Bats is literary a red herring. Until Buddy is forced into that role.

UltimateKyuubiFox : “It ends up saving the film from having to resort to the techniques that a lot of other films use to justify a romance between two characters.” Like chemistry, character development and a sense of true understanding? For me, their romance is what made the movie fall apart. I just didn’t buy it. The writing didn’t support their relationship much at all, beyond him loving the idea of her. Which would’ve been fine if that was intentional. But the moment she decides to give up her normal life to join his life on the run, I just felt confused. It was so unearned, it felt like they barely even knew anything about each other. I knew barely anything about her, much less anything that would help her making that decision make sense. In my opinion, the relationship between him and his deaf father-figure should’ve been the emotional heart of the film, but instead it’s this love story that wound up feeling hollow. It took me out of it completely. This film is technically brilliant, but it’s storytelling is lacking real weight. The visuals and the editing were great, but they weren’t enough to replace essential character-building.

ArpaN Dai : you need more subs

David Stewart : It's weird how the internet is becoming smarter than the Oscars.

Nick Brown : Awesome video, my first from your channel but I'll be back! Subscribed

bran jord : AMAZING video.

Nic Hume : Could not agree with you more! It wasn't until my second year studying film that I learnt the importance of production design/costumes in a film. Your video perfectly encapsulates whats it's all about, it goes largely unnoticed but subconsciously will create feelings and connections that other wise would not be as strong. Great video man!

Steve Porter : Don't get me wrong I like Hot Fuzz, but for me it's easily Wrights weakest don't get why it so much love above Shaun of the dead, Scott Pilgrim or Baby Driver, which are all way better in my humble opinion

Quinn Matthews : Wow

Scott Karrasch : I love every one of Edgar's films. While Scott Pilgrim, Baby Driver, and Hot Fuzz are tied for my favorite movies of all time, The World's End and Suan of the Dead are not far behind. His movies are just so much fun to watch and annalyse. His crazy attention to detail asks of us as viewers to pay attention to the littlest of things to get the most enjoyment out of a movie, which is what I personally believe is the fun of watching movies. Stuff like Back to the Future, How to Train your Dragon, Empire Strikes Back. They are crazy packed with connections and details that make rewatching them worth it. One of the things that really blew my mind was, after Baby stole the red camero (that's what it was, right?) from those guys and drove off through the city, you can see baby driving that car in the overhead shot! Any other movie it would have been a generic helecopter view of the city with generic cars running through it but this one showed you baby! And can we talk about how cool the city looked with the blue rooftops and the glowing orange roads? Like Ugh Edgar. Why are you so good?

RxAPC : The S's are off the chart in this video

Youssef : 1. Hot Fuzz 2. Shaun of the Dead 3. Scott Pilgrim 4. Baby Driver 5. The World's End The World's End and Baby Driver are still fantastic movies.

Jack Renshaw : Baby Driver deserves at least a couple of nominations

Charles Tran : First time on this channel and now I can't wait to see it grow! Keep up the great work!

Mattie : While your analysis here is incredible and really opened my eyes up to the stylistic choices that were made, I have to compliment your editing especially. This video is so well put together and it made your points very easy to follow. You have some serious skill in both analysis and editing!

BRICK AZD : 22 years paid off...

Just a Joker : Man the editing of this video was phenomenal, especially the part with baby's glasses that you showed.

Franz Hell : "Every other comedy director look lazy" You need to get your arse in-gear and watch everything Chris Morris has made asap.

Travis Steele : Goddamn, I had to like it midways through just to make sure I didn't forget to

suerafuls : Really interesting video
