I’m not saying that Baby Driver and They Live by Night are all that closely related; I’m just saying that I saw both in close proximity to one another, and I couldn’t help thinking of their surface similarities, even though they’re ultimately from different families. Regardless, They Live by Night is a highlight from The Criterion Collection’s June slate, but so as to avoid tooting my own horn I will also point you all to The Marseille Trilogy and Straw Dogs, a film that I’m starting to see people reevaluate on the Twitters and the Facebooks in our current, representation-minded, socially conscious film criticism society. (Troubling as the movie’s images are, I still consider it great, but I won’t fault anyone who finds it too graphically violent and bleak, among other things.)
