    Matt writes: One of the most acclaimed films of 2017 thus far is Edgar Wright's "Baby Driver," a cinematic adrenaline rush for the ages. It's the best fusion of ingenious car chases and equally imaginative song choices I've seen since "The Blues Brothers," and at RogerEbert.com, we have provided in-depth coverage of the picture, beginning with Brian Tallerico's three-and-a-half star review. Nell Minow conducted a terrific interview with Wright, Nick Allen analyzed Wright's rarely seen first feature ("A Fistful of Fingers") and Diana Drumm explored Wright's identity as "a true cinephile."
