Movie Review: “Baby Driver”

From the moment the first guitar chords strike you know “Baby Driver” is going to take you on a unique ride.  Edgar Wright has not crafted just another movie, not just another heist film, but created what has as much in common with a full blown dance musical as it does with a standard action [...]
