WHAT'S IT ABOUT

A young woman moves to London to study fashion design, and finds herself having vivid dreams of an aspiring singer in the swinging 60s that inspire her work. As time goes on, the dreams become nightmares, and begins to believe they may not be dreams at all.

    This intoxicating psychological horror flick is stylish as HELL. Director Edgar Wright and Director of Photography Chung-hoon Chung have melded their collective styles to create a hypnotic time-twisting ode to the seedy nature of the swinging 60s and the exploitation of women that plays with your mind long after. (Seriously, I had messed up dreams the night after.)

    Although it is clear in some parts that it's the director's first foray into horror, at times this is the film's success, ensuring that traditional conventions are eschewed for something that elevates it far above its genre counterparts. 4 out of 5 stars

    Do you like fashion? Do you like spooky ghosts? Do you like reproachful deconstructions of nostalgia that explore mental illness and the exploitation of women in the entertainment industry? Because boy do I have a mostly-pretty-great movie for you.

    Last night in Soho is a solid mash-up of Hitchcockian murder mystery, psychological thriller, and period drama, dazzling you with the glamour of the period and then brutally reminding you that Soho in the 60s was a dangerous and seedy place to try and make your way. It's a great-looking movie with some genuinely unsettling scares and all the actors are in fine form (especially the late Diana Rigg in her final performance), but there's a bit of bloat to the story, with quite a few red herrings that feel more like unexplored loose ends and the pacing definitely begins to drag in the second half.

    That's about as close as I can get to a quick summary of the ingredients that go into Last Night in Soho without giving too much away, and while all of these ingredients are of the highest quality, the end result feels a little less than the sum of its parts, but only by a little. 3.5 out of 5 stars
