Baby Driver is fresh. It mixes genres action movie, crime and love story, and music video. Baby, a taciturn man in his early twenties, lost his mother and father in a car accident when he was about 10. The parents were fighting in the front seats, shouted at each other, and she did see the breaking truck. Baby sitting in the back, saw it all and—bam—was an orphan.

If you are about to get married and want to celebrate this significant event with a diamond, I do not recommend you watch Blood Diamond. Your enthusiasm for diamonds will be greatly diminished. You will no longer sing, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” It is hard to get the idea out of one’s head because of these sparkling objects many people to lost their lives and one may literally wear blood on one’s hands.

The film tells a very good story that seems to be in large measure true.

He thanked everyone who helped him bring about his vision of making a film about the challenges of growing up as black gay kid. My interest was piqued.

This wonderful film deals with an intriguing question: how do you deal with something that one can never truly recover from?
Casey Affleck gives a stunning performance. If I were a voting member of the Academy of Motion Pictures, I would vote to give him the Oscar for best male performer in a leading role. Do not miss the chance to see him enact the role of the movie’s hero, who is trying to cope with something terrible that we only gradually understand.  The film manages to mix comedy with tragedy and offers a great night out at the movies.
