    It freaks me out that there's a hypothetical version of my life with a Fletcher-esque teacher in it. And in that version of my life, I am ruined... but I am great. I am the BEST. And I can't answer the question that that hypothetical raises, just like this movie can't, just like Damien Chazelle can't...

    Would living that life be worth it?

    Also, Melissa Benoist is fucking great in this movie and she deserves a role that can win her an Oscar.

    A nailbiter of a proof-of-concept short, reminding us that every great scene/sequence has a three-act structure and that Damien Chazelle is fucking great at what he does.

    Chazelle. Gosling. Stone. Just one teensy-tinsy narrative sour note. And one hell of an ending.

    Y'all have no idea how hard your world is about to get rocked.

    A classic. It's terrible in almost every way. But it's a classic.
