La La Land

La La Land ★★★★★

“People will want to go to it because you’re passionate about it and people love what other people are passionate about.”

When Emma Stone is nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars I hope they play a clip of her dancing to “I Ran”.

I really love this movie. From the dinner scene to the end-card my stomach was in knots. There's so much to take in and so much to think about. I’m dreading the day I’ll have to watch this at home on a TV or laptop. What Chazelle is saying about the musical genre of film is rather convoluted however his take on sacrifice and infatuation support the connotation of this being a millennial musical. I have an abundance of opinions that I'll take my time properly articulating before logging them on an inevitable rewatch.
