I have never thought Edgar Wright gets the credit he deserves, he has consistently directed, produced, or wrote for fantastic films for years now and has still seemingly flown under-the -radar. His résumé is superb, it consists of ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ and the entire Cornetto Trilogy. His direction really adds to the flow to the films. There are few dull moments in his films, if any.
Focusing solely on the Cornetto Trilogy– ‘Shaun of the Dead’, ‘Hot Fuzz’, and ‘The World’s End’, they are all basically spoofs of a specific genre but are all capable of just being another movie in said genres. Edgar Wright’s directorial approach emphasizes the comedy in such a witty way and he uses the closeup as a tool to do so. Anyone can film someone being funny but the way Edgar Wright films, he creates comedy–visual comedy.
