#848: Last Night in Soho / In the Cut (Campion #6)

Edgar Wright's latest, LAST NIGHT IN SOHO, is another opportunity for the director of "Baby Driver" and "Shaun of the Dead" to bring his visual panache, comic verve, and impeccable musical taste to a genre he clearly adores. Like the films that inspired it, Wright's time-hopping giallo picture – set in both contemporary London and the city in its swinging '60s heyday – takes some nasty turns. But Adam and Josh disagree about whether Wright's film is a thrill-ride that continually upends expectations—or an incoherent jumble of influences. And the Jane Campion Oeuvre-view arrives at the director's own divisive genre film, the 2003 erotic thriller IN THE CUT. Largely dismissed at the time, Adam and Josh make the case that the Meg Ryan-starring film deserves another look. 0:00 - Billboard 1:07 - Review: "Last Night in Soho" The Kinks, "Starstruck" 26:29 - Chicago Critics Film Festival Preview 34:06 - Next Week / Notes 41:42 - Massacre Theatre 47:13 - Campion #6: "In The Cut" 1:09:45 - Outro  Learn more about your ad choices.
