La La Land ♚ ♛ ♕♚ (#1 Film of the year)

Directed and written by Damien Chazelle, who brought us (my 2014 favorite film) Whiplash, comes La La Land. It’s a musical extravaganza we haven’t seen since the days of Moulin Rouge. But Moulin Rouge was sexy, dark and often misunderstood by critics.  La La Land is heartfelt and uplifting. Modern day ‘girl meets boy’ kind-of-stuff set against the backdrop of old Hollywood movie sets.  Yet, it’s not meant to be a contemporary Singing in the Rain.  Somehow, La La Land manages to be … read more
