'La La Land' starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone is the best film of the year, and the most well-made romantic of the decade. Not only is it a sweeping visual which is high on performance, but also lifts the dazzle off.
How many films entertain you just mindlessly and just move you with their ideas of passion and romance effectively, simultaneously? 'La La Land' is that rare, perfect film which astonishes, yes, but also stimulates the heart in amazing mannerisms and zeal.
It is a commendable, fantabulous film which celebrates the lovers in perfect fashion and symphony. I'm going with 5 out of 5 for Damien Chazelle's ''La La Land''. It is a flight of astonshing fancy and a sizzling watch.

A lively supercut of Classic musicals
It's been decades since a studio produced the kind of colorful musical
fantasy that "La La Land" so affectionately salutes, but
writer-director Damien Chazelle is the guy who done the job perfectly.
It is high-concept pastiche, filled with beautiful people, beautiful
movement, and beautiful colors. At its best, "La La Land" probes the
irony of its existence, celebrating the greatness of a bygone era in
the context of changing times. As a drama, this is less nourishing than
the heritage it pays tribute to. But for Chazelle, the story is just a
slight rib around which he builds a modern rhapsody. So in spite of its
flaws, La La Land has moments of pleasure and satisfaction that are
worth the price of admission. It's not that it's a bad movie; it's just
not an outstanding entertainment, the way great movies (especially
musicals) should be. I go with 3.5/5 for the musical drama by Damien
Chazelle and I do think that it is the frontrunner for the Oscars.
