Signature Moves of Edgar Wright

Part of TIFF’s Signature Moves series which looks at the works of famous directors and the signature elements of their work. While the previous entries were all tied to director retrospectives, we made this one just for fun as a tribute to one of our favourite honourary Torontonians.

The Signature Moves of Edgar Wright

What makes an Edgar Wright movie an Edgar Wright movie? Crash-zoom into Shaun of the Dead, whip-pan into Hot Fuzz, and then very, very slowly tie your shoes à la Scott Pilgrim as TIFF brings the noise with a countdown of the reference-happy, editor-heavy, Cornetto-eating directorial flourishes of geek-auteur (and Toronto favourite) Edgar Wright.
