This movie is about a guy that is the getaway driver for different robberies (you can find more about it here). What I found interesting about it is the fact that Baby (that’s his nickname in the movie), the driver, was addicted to music. But not addicted like you and me, more like crazy ass addicted.
The logical explanation is that he has some weird hearing deficiency and music helps him. I believe that he uses music as a way to stock his best memories and also for keeping him in a certain mind and emotional state. It might be some sort of a filter he uses to see the world.
In my opinion, music is one of the best addictions out there which we can overdose without any worries.
Have you seen the movie? What are your thoughts about it?

I saw this movie the day before the revelations about Spacey came out and I’m glad I did – the film itself is really fun and has a killer soundtrack
It isn’t the best film in the world, but I it really enjoyable imo
I do like the closing scenes and how the ending comes together
Yes, I agree. Personally, I didn’t expect that… I thought they would run away :))
As one with sensory processing issues, I can tell you that sound can be a harsh, harsh weapon. Thing is, when you find music that speaks to you, the reverse holds just as true: it’s heaven. I don’t use it the same way they do in the movie, but I understand the addiction. For me, music is the key to everything else. It heals pain and trauma. It shifts moods. It elevates me physically, mentally, and spiritually. I can connect music through other art forms. I don’t know that I can explain it any better, but hopefully that makes the point.
Yes, I understand the point. Can you give an example of one of your favorite songs?
I’m a sucker for the genius of Beethoven. Most of his catalog is just sublime.
I loved this movie! But then, I do like Edgar Wright’s films in general.
The way every single physical movement, gun fire, etc was timed to the soundtrack music was awe-inspiring!
I went into this one blind, only knew that Spacey and Foxx and that kid that died in TFIOS were in the cast, my husband dangled popcorn and a coke in front of me to get me to go. I’m glad I did! The movie stuck with me all that week, took me that long to really absorb and process it.
Music is an addiction I support fully! I love to listen to, and share, and experience music other’s love. For me, it’s one of the most personal things you can share, a way to express yourself and learn about others in a truly unique way.
Yes, it’s a great movie. Music can alter our mood and our mindset in so many ways.
I saw the movie it was pretty good 😊
I never thought about it as an addiction, but with your explanation criteria, I believe I would have to say I am addiction to music. Have not seen the movie though.
That’s great! What kind of music do you listen to?
The only genres that I absolutely cannot listen to is opera, jazz, heavy metal, and hard rap music. I usually rotate genres. Earlier this year I was listening to Indie alternative, then moved to new country music, and now I’m listening to the “oldies.” I mostly like peppy music to push through but sometimes I just relax/meditate while listening to mellow instrumentals. How about you?
Over the years I had the surprise of finding amazing songs in almost all genres. My favorite is rap because it helped me get over every tough moment I had in my life.
That’s the beauty of music, different types speak different things to each of us. When we don’t have words, music speaks for us.
Perfect work you have done, this site is really cool with superb information.
