La La Land Doesn’t Disappoint

La La Land begins with a great big dance number and we’re already on our way to a magically real Hollywood.

I love that they chose to use nearly always solidly colored, colorful wardrobe. It enhanced the color palette from stunning to striking.

But I keep hearing comments that neither star can sing very well. What these folks are missing is that yes, they do not sing like trained professionals, but when they harmonize it is beautiful. Far more beautiful than they are when they are apart – a clear metaphor for the film and that much more heartbreaking for the knowing of it.

Really, really short review: Beware those around you are telling you this is the best movie ever. It’s really quite good but the expectations are getting far too high.
