Last Night In Soho is one of Edgar Wright’s best films to date!
Anya Taylor- Joy and Thomasin McKenzie star in Edgar Wright’s Last Night In Soho. It is a psychological thriller that showcases Wright’s talent as an ambitious writer and innovative director. I was glad to see Jojo Rabbit’s Thomasin McKenzie cast as the lead in this movie, as she was one of my favorites from that film. Of course, I have been a big Anya Taylor-Joy ever since I watched Queens Gambit, and it is great to see her offered plenty of significant roles.
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.
Last Night In Soho is a stylish genre mash-up. At first, I did not know what type of film I was watching because of the slow start, but I was eager to see what happened next as the story progressed. The story has plenty of originality that is carried by a strong cast and an alluring London setting. The cast is fantastic and delivers strong performances. Anya Taylor-Joy and Doctor Who’s Matt Smith have great on-screen chemistry, and I would love to see them in more movies together. In addition, I was delighted to see Thomasin McKenzie get her chance to shine with a prominent role in this film. She is definitely one to keep your eye on. The time-traveling elements in this film are mesmerizing to watch. Add in some paranormal horror and blood, and this movie will offer moviegoers a frighteningly good time. The visual effects may not be as polished, but you will not notice most of the flaws while watching the shocking moments.
I give Last Night In Soho an 8 out of 10. Edgar Wright manages to elevate the genre with this film. You can catch in theaters beginning October 29th.
