When you have Cate Blanchett in your superhero movie, you fucking use her.
This felt like two movies in one overcrowded flick. Kinda fun, but also bland and way too light tonally...
Meh and forgettable.
After finishing Drive, I was confused, puzzled. But quickly revisiting it brought me into the genius work that this.
Drive is able to create characters through dramatic tension and moments.
Drive is able to do so many things that have never really been done before. All thanks to Winding Refn.
La La Land is one of the most joyous movie experiences I have had. La La Land just lets you exhale, forgetting about all your worries and investing yourself in the beauty and blast that is La La Land.
Damien Chizelle loves classic movies, that love is so apparent throughout.
This is a total throwback to the golden age of Hollywood from it vibrant colors to its acting.
It's tone is what makes this work, it is so vibrant and alive. The music is excellent, always falling perfectly in line with the story. It is utilized so well.
I think this is a perfect film.
