“A jazz pianist falls for an aspiring actress in Los Angeles.”
Do they make movies like this anymore? I guess every now and then they do. And I’m so glad they made this movie. La La Land, to me at least, from all stand points is as perfect as a movie can be. Its production is 100% on point, its directing is subtle when it should be, but perfectly directional when it needs to be. It set design and costuming is perfect. The acting and singing and dancing is wonderful to behold. And most importantly, it all fits and works together as a whole. Emma Stone isn’t the greatest singer of all time, but the way her vocals are used here fit perfectly, and really make her stand out when she needs to. There is no one that does RE-acting better than Ryan Gosling, and there is probably no one more multi talented. The man can act, he can sing, he can dance, and he did some amazing piano work for this movie also. Enough can’t be said also about the chemistry between Emma and Ryan, they’ve done it before, and they’ve done it again here. La La Land is a real once in a so often kind of movie. Yes it is a musical, and if thats not your cup of tea then you probably aren’t going to be as high on this movie as I am. But even if you don’t like musicals, and you see this movie, and it doesn’t at least strike up some kind of nostalgia, and some kind of feelings in you, then maybe you’re dead inside, but if you’re not, you need to do yourself a favour and see this movie.
Review Score : 10 out of 10
