Edgar Wright has never met a film genre he couldn’t transform. He took the world of zombies and infused it with high-energy comedy to create “Shawn of the Dead.” Now, he has tackled fast cars with “Baby Driver.” It starts out looking to be nothing more than a fast story of furious thugs, but Wright quickly turns it into a blend of “Reservoir Dogs” and “Romeo and Juliet.” All you have to do is give his twisted sense of filmmaking a few moments, and the contradictions become a thing of beauty.
