The films that inspired Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho - BFI

'My new film Last Night In Soho was born out of a long-held desire to fashion a story set in an area of Central London that I’ve worked in for the last 25 years, a district that I love and sometimes fear. The 1960s casts a long shadow on Soho and I’ve long been fascinated with the films of the period that peek into the darker corners of central London nightlife. This season represents a broad range of some of the films that inspired me; dramas, horrors, thrillers, even documentaries (of sometimes dubious veracity). So, as the nights get longer, disappear down some dark alleys with me...' - Edgar Wright

Edgar Wright’s London After Dark takes place at BFI Southbank and on BFI Player October 2021.
