Edgar Wright is undoubtedly one of the most stylized and unique filmmakers working today. His body of work is loaded with visual, aural, tonal, and narrative trademarks that make all of his films the distinct products of a singular vision.

Wright’s works possess inimitable energy and flair that can be felt immediately and that relentlessly captivates throughout the duration of his films. He puts style front in center, but not as a distraction; it only serves to enhance his stories. From his beloved rapid-paced montages to his unparalleled use of musical synchronization, let’s take a look at a few of the many elements that make an Edgar Wright film pop and, more importantly, linger on.
