I think some people don’t quite get Edgar Wright. I’ve seen too many reviewers, for instance, write off Scott Pilgrim vs. the World as kitchy pastiche and complain that the video game elements got annoying. Others expected The World’s End to be a laughfest and missed the great depth of structure and meaning in the film.
There are lots of reasons to love Edgar Wright. His tight, clever structuring is definitely one of them. But in the following video, Tony Zhou shows that one of the key reasons is his use of cinematic qualities, especially framing, visual storytelling, and sound, to emphasize comedy.
