La La Land

La La Land ★★★★★

Ugh, why did I wait so long to watch this. 

The crazy thing is I think Whiplash is one of the best films of this decade, and yet Damien Chazelle somehow feels even more assured with La La Land. By all accounts, this was a passion project for him, and that passion absolutely jumps off the screen. There's so much energy in every frame, it's infectious. 

Everything about this is beautiful, just beautiful. It's two hours of magic.
