Matt writes: One of the most acclaimed films of 2017 thus far is Edgar Wright's "Baby Driver," a cinematic adrenaline rush for the ages. It's the best fusion of ingenious car chases and equally imaginative song choices I've seen since "The Blues Brothers," and at RogerEbert.com, we have provided in-depth coverage of the picture, beginning with Brian Tallerico's three-and-a-half star review. Nell Minow conducted a terrific interview with Wright, Nick Allen analyzed Wright's rarely seen first feature ("A Fistful of Fingers") and Diana Drumm explored Wright's identity as "a true cinephile."

Matt writes: We are certain that Roger Ebert would've been thrilled by director Patty Jenkins' recent record-shattering triumph. Her superhero blockbuster, "Wonder Woman," had the highest-grossing opening weekend for a film directed by a woman, and has earned widespread acclaim from both audiences and critics (including our own). It is only Jenkins' second feature, arriving 14 years after her astonishing debut, "Monster," which was hailed by Ebert as the best film of 2003, containing a performance by Charlize Theron that was dubbed by the critic as one of the greatest in cinema history (Theron went on to win the Best Actress Oscar).
