Like all Edgar Wright films, The World’s End is a good movie to start with, and it gets even better on subsequent viewings. A lot of that is because of the care the director puts into setting up things that pay off subtly later in the movie.
What do we mean? Well, Youtube user The Pitching Room has taken the film’s first three minutes and put it side by side with shots from later in the movie that are set up at the beginning. It’s kind of stunning, and fully endorsed by Wright himself.
Here’s the video. Don’t watch if you haven’t seen the movie yet. And if you haven’t, get on that already.
