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.
best film of the year !
