    Superior production design, bravura action sequences in a real lived in science-fiction setting. Lots of money up on the screen. There are the inevitable 90’s big budget clichés abounding but it’s very well put together.

    Great idea and set up very much in the Carpenter vein but fatally underwritten and splutters out a third of the way in.

    It's a bit by the numbers Oscar bait, but the performances are terrific and after awhile, it really gathers power for a solid finish. I really liked it.

    It doesn't hit home runs with its musical and dance numbers, and I don't know that Stone and Gosling really fit together, but something spooky and wonderful happens in this film on the way: charm, heart, honesty, and truth. Bravo to Damien Chazelle and his restless, artistic spirit.
