La La Land ★★★★★

My afternoon opened up today, so I snuck out to see this film. 2:20 showing.

I got in there right at 2:20, and the previews had started. The place was packed! It's a Thursday (yeah, yeah, it's the holidays - but still) in the middle of the afternoon and the place is almost full.

As per usual, so many other people talk about this film with more passion and with more dedication than I do, but I have to say I really enjoyed the film. The opening is incredible. The pacing feels a bit slow in the middle, but not enough to pull me out of the narrative.

Great music. Fun. Endearing. A must see.
