Last Night in Soho: Edgar Wright's latest film is a beautiful nightmare

Edgar Wright's latest film is a beautiful and psychological nightmare that pays homage to the movies directed by legendary filmmakers Dario Argento, David Lynch, and Ingmar Bergman. The cinematography is gorgeous, and the production design of London during the Swinging Sixties is fantastic and visually stunning. Thomasin McKenzie and Anya Taylor-Joy give excellent performances as the two main leads. The supporting cast is impressive, which features Matt Smith, Michael Ajao, Terence Stamp, and the late great Diana Rigg. The only negative I have with the film is that the screenplay comes off as a little convoluted making it hard to follow which part of the film is genuine and what takes place in the imaginary world. "Last Night in Soho" is a beautiful horror movie that serves as a love letter to the classic 1970's Italian horror films era. Thanks to Edgar Wright's incredible direction, gorgeous production design, and fantastic performances by Thomasin McKenzie and Anya Taylor-Joy, "Last Night in Soho" is a trip worth taking. If I can describe this film in the best way possible, "Last Night in Soho" comes across as a mash-up between "Midnight in Paris" meets "Suspiria."
