Definitely a must see and a clear contender for the Best Picture Oscar. Made me fall in love with my city of LA all over again.
Best Movie of 2016. Everything from the acting, directing, songs, score, dialogue, cinematography, production/costume design, and sound is just top notch. Even if your not a fan of musicals or slow pacing, this is still an absolute must see!!! 10/10!!!
Damien Chazelle’s musical, consistently daring and occasionally sublime, does what the movies have all but forgotten how to do — sweep us up into a dream of love that’s enhanced in an urgent present by the mythic power of Hollywood’s past.
Some of it is wistful, some of it whimsical, but it's all wonderful, impossibly so.
For Chazelle to be able to pull this off the way he has is something close to remarkable. The director's feel for a classic but, for all intents and purposes, discarded genre format is instinctive and intense.
