Pictures, videos, interviews, and whatnot about one of the best directors out there.
rhi-massey I think my response was eaten so trying this again.
Hey there! So I just did a quick search on the auteur theory and this sounds like an interesting essay. I would suggest you do a google search on Edgar Wright techniques because I think you’ll find a lot of the meat for your essay right there. A quick look brought up some lists on Wright’s techniques that you can discuss, including an article on close-ups and that video on Edgar Wright’s visual comedies, which actually compares his work to other comedies. Talking about how his homage to other directors and movies have become a part of his style is also worth noting. That’s a good starting point. Also, you may want to discuss his role as a writer and possibly check out some articles on Ant-Man considering news articles state he dropped out when his script was changed (his vision was possibly compromised). Besides that though I think his commentaries on his movies and Spaced will also add some useful information. Some of them are available online and articles with breakdowns also show up with an “Edgar Wright commentary” search. I’m sorry if this is not specific enough, I’m not entirely sure how much you need, but hopefully I caught this in time. If any followers have any suggestions, I’m sure they’d be appreciated as well.

See all those “7”s? You may not have noticed [Scott Pilgrim vs. The World]’s recurring number themes running throughout: Remember how Scott fights seven “evil exes,” and progresses through their seven respective levels? Well, each one of those exes is himself a number, and everything about him reflects that fact.
- Matthew Patel, the first evil ex, has only one eye (or at least it appears that way, because of his haircut, which we’ll call the Emo Combover). He poses by pointing in the air (with one hand) and gets called “that one guy.”
- Lucas Lee, the second, stays in trailer #2 and says it’ll take “two minutes to kick your ass” and that the staircase he grinds down has “like 200 steps.”
- Todd Ingram is in a three-piece band and, like Scott [who wears a “ZERO” shirt at one point], also wears his number on his shirt.
- The Roxy Richter fight happens in a club called “4”.
- Katayanagi twins (numbers 5 and 6) turn their music up to 11 and have five syllables in their last name (six with the first name).
- The final, seventh boss is Gideon (whose name starts with G, the seventh letter of the alphabet).

We weren’t allowed to use Star Wars merchandise during the first series because The Phantom Menace was about to come out and they clamped down. When they saw how Star Wars-loving the first series was, they actually came to us and said we could have anything we want. By which time we were like, “We don’t fucking want it.” - Simon Pegg
