Style is when one owns it and doesn’t let anything stay in the way of one’s own music. The more one knows oneself, the nicer the things one does are and harmony becomes the 🏎 driver 🏎 of the one who always remembers of what being a 🏎 baby 🏎 is like.

Style is a ride to truth and truth is permanent and then everything else falls by the wayside.The ride might be long and bumpy, but it’s one of the most beautiful rides ever! A cinematic joyride, both in life and Baby Driver, directed by Edgar Wright.

One might not get it right the first time, nor the second. The fact, however, that one is at about 70 or 10% of the ride, lights up the ride so brightly that one can actually see the light at the end of it and want to feel it. I am smiling, too, as I’m writing this. And then even magic comes in and when you think you’re done, in fact you have just begun.

Vroom-vroom. Baby Driver is superb, vroom.

Who thinks Baby Driver is just too romantic, who has never been in love.

The first time I saw it, I didn’t quite pay attention to it. I learned to understand that, sometimes, when something super natural happens, it’s very often that one doesn’t even process it all because the only thing one does, in that very moment, is just live and stop thinking.

There’s a moment in life when you feel you start to live.

The second time around, though, when I realised what I’d seen the first time, it literally blew my mind as only a specific kind of things do. Actually, this kind of things start to happen the moment you think you’re done and in fact you’ve just begun. To have fun with your style.

The style Baby – Ansel Elgort – has in Baby Driver might seem so simple it might not even seem worth mentioning and, yet, is everything. Style might refer to clothes in the first place, but then, style means every single thing we do and how we do, say and how we say. It’s attitude and attitude can never be taken away from one. Nor imitated by some, nor faked by one.

Shall we dance? Yes.

Toast to the Universe? Oh, baby!

Too bad Kevin Spacey ruined our party a bit. Luckily, we all found out about the thing one is not ever supposed to do after Baby Driver had happened and – luckily yet again – after – thank Goodness! – American Beauty had happened.

A movie is all about attitude and attitude is style and style is about clothes also. The way the Universe works is magic. Nice, neat jackets, clean cut denim, crisp, cool t-shirts, fresh hair, colours, attentively built characters. No noise, just music.

Speaking of music, have you ever thought of your lucky songs? I have after seeing Baby Driver. I knew what songs create special wavebands in me no matter the weather or place, yet haven’t considered them to be my lucky ones. I do now.

 

Is this a proposition for you to watch the film? Yes. Is this an invitation to a date with your style? Could be. Is this a reminder for us to open our eyes and see that some of our most important days in our lives begin and we are not even there to see it? Probably. But that’s life and it has its magic ways.

Or, you know, Baby Driver just inspired me the way only a specific kind of things do.
