    A Tale of Love and Darkness

    ★★

    I love Natalie Portman and I really appreciate the effort put into this movie, but I wouldn't feel comfortable telling you that it's good and I liked it.

    I can't blame her. It's basically the first thing she has ever directed and that's very noticeable. Still, a very respectable work. Keep it up, Nat!

    Remember that time Damien Chazelle decided to start filming masterpieces exclusively?

    There's no doubt La La Land is Chazelle's directing at its best but Whiplash is Chazelle's writing at its best, and that Teller/Simmons dynamic is spectacular. Their acting is fucking top notch.

    This is Chazelle's masterpiece so far. Can't wait to see what his filmography is gonna look like in the future.

    I hope the backlash this movie is getting is because Poe and Finn are still not gay for each other, because if that's not the reason, then I don't fucking get it. This movie is fantastic.
