Manga Mavericks @ Movies month continues with two stylish, sexy films about cars and crime! That’s right, we’re discussing Baby Driver and Logan Lucky, two films made by experienced directors honing their craft in these tightly-paced and smartly-plotted stories about good guys doing bad things for the sake of the people they love…with CARS!! Does Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver hit the beats of the fine-combed screenwriting and smartly self-reflexive humor that’s become his signature? Is Logan Lucky a worthy souther-style spiritual successor to Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean‘s series? Put in your earphones, get in your car, and put the pedal to the mettle as you listen to our podcast on the road to wherever your destination may be!
