“How a New York band inspired ‘Baby Driver’ 20 years ago”

“You might already know this, but the new movie Baby Driver opens with an absolutely virtuosic broad-daylight Atlanta car chase set to the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion’s deathless romp “Bellbottoms.” If this isn’t enough to convince you to see this movie, then you and I are not the same. Wright cuts the car chase so that all the big moments arrive at big moments in the song, and by the time it ends, you’re left panting. It’s a trick that Wright pulls again and again in the movie, setting all of its scenes to great old pop and funk and instrumental tracks.”
