Brief Synopsis – A young aspiring fashion designer somehow gets the ability to enter the 1960’s and watch the mysterious going-ons in Soho.
My Take on it – This is a film that I had heard so much fanfare about recently so I was interested in seeing what it was all about.
Unfortunately, I only knew what the title was and wasn’t aware of the fact that it was a horror type film.
When I found that out right before watching, I started to get nervous about it, but was still interested in seeing what Edgar Wright would do with it.
The film does a nice job juxtaposing the two time periods where this story takes place (The Present Day and the 1960).
They find some nice ways to switch between these time period quite smoothly especially when they make it very clear that there is a supernatural element that is moving everything along.
The film has a great cast with Anya Taylor-Joy, Diana Riggs, Terrance Stamp and Thomasin McKenzie all giving great performances.
The horror aspect of the film was a part that I didn’t really care for, but I did enjoy the way that the mystery of the story kept getting more and more involved which helped make it even more engaging.
The pacing is a bit too slow and that odes hurt things a bit too much.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – During the end credits shots of a deserted, empty, central London flash on screen. All of these shots were completed during the COVID-19 global pandemic. The empty streets are as they were, as England at the time was in a national lockdown. (From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
