La La Land

The vintage Hollywood look of this film is worth your money spent in and of itself.  The cinematography and colorful costuming give it a vibrant look making it come alive on the screen more so than other movies.

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone give above average performances singing and dancing.  The story and characters are developed nicely between musical scenes. However, while the writing is brave and unconventional during most of the film, challenging monotonous Hollywood scripting, it takes a cowardly turn in the very end with a typical regurgitated conclusion, reminiscent of so many average movies. The writers refuse to take the film all the way and crash boundaries.

Nonetheless, La La Land is highly recommended and a requirement for anyone seeking pure enjoyment with an original film in the theater.
