La La Land

La La Land ★★★★★

A poignant ode to artists, dreamers, and creativity, Damien Chazelle's La La Land is not only a terrific follow-up to Whiplash but also one of the most electrifying and sublimely put together pieces of filmmaking I've ever had the pleasure of seeing in theaters as well as the without a shadow of a doubt in my mind the best film of the year, with breathtakingly gorgeous cinematography and visuals, superb production values, dazzling musical numbers, wonderful performances, strong storytelling, and engaging, beautifully written characters.

Merry Christmas to everyone here on Letterboxd and a Happy New Year, ya filthy animals.
