A- Z Challenge | director series | E – Edgar Wright
Edgar wright is a British filmmaker famous for his excellent comedy. Comedy is one of the most underrated genres. Handling humour in a subtle way is a double edged sword. Edgar Wright excels in handling the genre with ease, especially his unique style of humour stands apart. His collaboration with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost right from the days of TV (Spaced) is simply irreplaceable. His movies are a great treat for movie buffs and nerds. Some of his signature elements are making fun of the cliches in a particular genre, fast cuts and humour at unexpected places.
I’m spotlighting one of the most underrated movies of Edgar Wright, Scott Pilgrim vs. the world. This movie is a comedy based on the Scott pilgrim comic series with Michael Cera playing the lead. This movie was his creative best in terms of visual play. Just like his other movies he uses the elements of comic books and gives a tribute. You can get the feel of reading a comic book on watching this movie.
Other notable works of Edgar Wright are Shaun of the dead, Hot fuzz, The world’s end.
