La La Land

La La Land ★★★★★

Have lost track of how many times I've seen this movie now. Was lucky enough to see it at the Hollywood Bowl with an orchestra scoring it live, and goddamn- still think this movie is a masterpiece, and this time around I realized how great the direction in it is. It's a stunning example of "show, don't tell." I loved Moonlight and think Barry Jenkins is a fantastic director, but I feel like giving Best Director to La La Land was the right move.
