Meg Waters (Glamour, Stylist and Little White Lies) and Sarah Collier join Flixwatcher to review Meg’s choice Last Night in Soho.
Last Night in Soho (2021) is a psychological horror from director Edgar (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) Wright. 1960s obsessed Eloise/Ellie (Thomasin McKenzie) moves to London from sleepy Cornwall to follow her dreams and study fashion at London College of Fashion. She falls victim to the taunts of queen bee university bully Jocasta (Synnøve Karlsen) and moves into a creepy bedsit with Ms Collins (Diana Rigg, in her final role) as the landlady.
In her new bedsit Ellie has a dream where she is transported by to the swinging sixties London and is transported into the body of Sandie (Anya Taylor-Joy), an aspiring singer, and meets seedy bar owner Jack (Matt Smith). When Ellie’s dreams start merging into reality things take a dark turn.
Views on Last Night in Soho were mixed, there are some excellent technical scenes and 1960s styling but the clunky plot and unintentional comedy made for an uneven watch. The overall rating from the combined scores was 2.69, making it the lowest Flixwatcher rated Edgar Wright film so far.
