    ★★★★

    A straight-forward and rewarding story of contrasts: Old Paris vs modern Paris. Brown vs gray. Curves vs. cubes. Conversation vs convenience. Life in the neighborhood vs. life at home. Patina vs. sterility. Being vs. seeming. Bicycles vs. cars. Dogs vs. the world.

    As with all of Tati’s classics, the blocking and production design on this film are admirably and evidently and perhaps overly precise. It all gels to enhance the chaotic good of the old Paris versus the orderly evil…

    I resent the cruel things this movie says about Phil Collins.

    ★★★★

    La La Land is the Gotye’s “Someone That I Used to Know” of movies: undeniably catchy and clever in construction, pleasantly saturated, strikingly reverent of its references, impressively crafted, yet something I feel guilty about liking, and will likely seem more and more anemic as time passes. Going to revisit the film next year.
