What to watch tonight?
La La Land (2016)
Director: Damien Chazelle
Ratings : 8/10
Synopsis: #EmmaStone and #RyanGosling once again make an exceptional duo in this spectacular musical/romance film. Mia (Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Gosling), a talented musician working to open his own #jazz club, try to make sense of the show business world in #LosAngeles as they struggle to "make it big" in their respective careers.
#Review: This #film serves as a critique towards the show business industry in "the City of Angels". Often glorified and romanticized, show business is not always flowers and sunshine as personified throughout modern history and has its own course of very real obstacles to overcome if one wants to be successful. This film emphasizes the fact that people can create the #illusion that they'll easily become a successful #actor, #actress, #musician or whatever. But when reality hits, it hits back hard. And even if you do find success, it may not always be what you had in mind.
Damien Chazelle has outdone himself once again. After making #Whiplash (2014), he has now delivered a new musical masterpiece with a beautiful narrative.
Through wonderful cinematography, brilliant choreography, writing, and music, this is a film that can be enjoyed by both movie buffs, and casual movie-goers.
