For the incredibly-named new BFI screening series “Edgar Wright presents Car Car Land,” the “Baby Driver” director presents key car chase films that inspired his new action epic. In a high-octane intro for the series, Wright wrote, “These movies are a literal crash course in the best car action from the 60s, 70s and 80s. I can’t make any claims to being a great driver and I’m not even sure you could call me a gearhead (I would struggle to change a flat). However, I am a fan of action cinema in its purest form and the best film car chases are some of the most glorious collisions of sound and image in the art form. Not having had the pleasure of being in any high-speed chases growing up in rural England, I had to get my Route 66 kicks from the movies. This season represents a taster of vehicular heaven that ultimately led me to fulfil the dream of making my own car movie, ‘Baby Driver.’ Enjoy the glorious carnage about to zoom down the South Bank; I apologise in advance for the smell of burnt rubber.” Click through our gallery to see his key picks.
