Astounding. I was left speechless coming out of the cinema, post-screening.
Director Damien Chazelle shows a cinematic craftsmanship which truly belies his age.
There's so much to love here, but I was particularly enthralled by the way the film takes on almost thriller-like machinations as the narrative progresses.
Being a jazz fan, I was also hugely impressed with how the music slid between diegetic and non-diegetic sound to inform mood and pace. So clever.
Is it too early to call film of the year yet? Can't wait to revisit this on the big screen.
