La La Land

La La Land ★★★★½

"A technicolour world made out of music and machine."

Nine words that come from the opening of La La Land and perfectly embodies the entire films identity. The music is ripe, vivacious and dreamy while the camera weaves seamlessly through scenes, following any movement or action in a way that is attractive and strikingly noticeable even to a novice viewer. I am still enamoured by this, quite a bit actually, and whenever there's a whip pan, I almost faint and die from its sexiness.
