La La Land (2016)

1

A jazz pianist falls for an aspiring actress in Los Angeles. (IMDb)
Fresh right from the unabashedly joyous opening song to its road rage at first sight (such humour is tastefully dotted throughout). Their ever-after isn’t what it could have been either, but the plot’s interplay between love and individual aspiration (each are marvelously portrayed by Gosling and Stone) shows it isn’t necessarily a bad thing–a nuance that adds depth to the film’s cute romance and gorgeous aesthetic of dream-like colours and camerawork, scrumptious sets, and magical music.
8.5/10 (Amazing)

  1. So glad to see that you loved it, so much so that it’s currently on your Complete Film Rankings list! I feel the same way – I haven’t been able to get this film out of my mind since I saw it. It’s probably in my currently Top 10 of all time, as well! I’m seeing it again tonight.
