Art and Experience:
Edgar Wright wants you to laugh through all of this coronavirus business with these movies.
What I love about Letterboxd is that you can network individually with filmmakers and see what they watched and what they like. In these crazy times, I am running out of things to stream. Lucky for me, Edgar Wright wants to keep me laughing.

He went on Letterboxd and wrote, “To get you through these tough times, please enjoy a generous helping of SOME of my favourite screen comedies that I’ve enjoyed over the years. I could easily do another 100 so don’t say ‘Where’s so and so?’. Just sit back and enjoy the movies. Let us know below, which ones you raise a smile. (NB: No, I’m not so immodest to put my own on here. x)”

So without further ado, check out his list of the best comedies!
