  • Love letter to Hollywood .. and a Heck of a Film

    January 1st, 2017

    Writer/Director Damien Chazelle, who already had a nice career going for him, explodes into the Bigtime with this delightful, mesmerizing, and completely unexpected ode to Tinseltown.. The opening sequence (satirized on the Golden Globes) really does not do the rest of the film justice. It is as if the cast from the FAME remake grew up, had childr...

  • My Most Memorable Cinematic Experience Since Star Wars - when I was six

    October 10th, 2016

    The last time, I felt like this, in a cinema, I was six years old and I was watching Star Wars. I never imagined, I would ever find that feeling again in a cinema. That sense of being transported to another world. . The opening sequence took my breath away and I never got it back. Not even at the end - which left my head spinning. It is a beautifu...

  • An unashamedly romantic musical, infused with intense charisma and devastating emotion

    October 10th, 2016

    I was interested in seeing this film because not only am I a sucker for a good musical, but I'll admit to being a big fan of Ryan Gosling and I was intrigued to see what the director of Whiplash would do with a musical picture to make it fresh and unique. So when I had the chance to see a late-planned viewing at the London Film Festival, I jumped ...

  • A wonderful film that begs to be watched.

    September 15th, 2016

    An observatory, a boulevard, a bridge, a downtown trolley, all make up filming locations of the new film "La La Land". These locations are iconic, yet remain unnamed throughout the film. The sum of these locations create the city of Los Angeles. Any meaningful production is a sum of its cast members and in the case of "La La Land" there is no diff...

  • The Most Charming Film of the Year

    December 13th, 2016

    La La Land is a triumph on so many levels. It hooks you from the beginning with its big opening number on the highway and has your heart fluttering in the club at the end. Damien Chazelle has proved himself to be one of the most talented directors/screenwriters in film right now.. The film gets you with its charm. It flows from the dialogue like p...

  • They Don't Make Them Like They Used To

    December 29th, 2016

    While looking forward to seeing this film but having no real expectations, the film was excruciatingly painful to sit through and I like musicals. Being a former film student,I found this film slow, boring, uneventful and at least an hour too long with unappealing characters. At a point in the film, Ryan Gosling's character looks out over L.A. and...

  • A wonderful and loving ode to the dreamers and artists of the world.

    September 17th, 2016

    When I first saw the trailer for La La Land my expectations were set high. The excellent cast, the music and an exciting new director/writer were enough to get me in the door. I'm always a bit hesitant when it comes to filmed musicals.. Will it be stagy, stilted and awkward? Not in this case. Damien Chazelle has made a wonderfully cinematic and lo...

  • Painfully Bad Film Musical

    December 20th, 2016

    I love musicals, but I must have missed the stand in the theater where they were handing our the kool-aid for this one. . Based on the hype, I had high expectations. I went in thinking "La La Land" would be like "An American in Paris" or "The Bandwagon," but once it started I realized it was more like "One From the Heart," or "Everyone Says I Love...

  • Golden age of Hollywood cinema re-imagined for today

    September 17th, 2016

    Telluride by the Sea (Portsmouth, NH) led off its 2016 weekend film festival with La La Land, a captivating film that hearkens back to the golden age of Hollywood cinema yet remains firmly embedded in present-day Los Angeles life. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling bring a startling depth and nuanced feelings to what could easily have been another trite ...

  • You'll be toe-tapping from start to finish

    October 8th, 2016

    You know when you're watching a film that you just don't want to end, and when it does end you feel as if you could watch it all over again right there and then? I had that feeling with La La Land, the new film from Damien Chazelle, who blew us all away with Whiplash a few years ago.. With La La Land, Chazelle has made an irresistible musical come...
