Damien Chazelle gives us a human film... [Full review in Spanish]

Visually stunning. It makes Los Angeles look a lot prettier than it actually does.

Ambitious, hopeful and loving... a celebration of musical culture.

From its exuberant opening musical number, set atop a traffic-jammed Los Angeles freeway overpass, La La Land announces its intention to win your heart through whimsy.

January 25, 2018
Taking his love for jazz music, director/writer Damien Chazelle breathes new life into the old Hollywood musical genre much like 2011's The Artist did for silent cinema.

This is totally a love letter to those old school movies with old school musicals of old-school Hollywood and it does it much better than movies who try to do it now.

La La Land is the best movie I've ever seen.
January 16, 2018
La La Land is a bit like its Oscar-winning song, City of Stars: it may seem slight, but in the end, it's the little things you remember most.

January 9, 2018
La La Land may not reach the greatness of the classic musicals that Chazelle clearly adores, but to borrow from J.K. Simmons' jazz taskmaster in Whiplash: good job.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

"La La Land" serves not only as a paean to young love and the thousands of dreamers striving to catch a break every day in LA, but also as a beautiful tribute to the city at its magical best.

One minute in and I was bewitched. And from there it just kept on getting better.

December 21, 2017
... an original, distinctive, smart, witty work, whose use of its materials and allusions is utterly contemporary.
December 18, 2017
Gosling and Stone are adorable; they comport themselves well enough at singing and dancing, and the effervescence of the work gives their somewhat amateurish routines a shaggy charm.
December 4, 2017
Director Damien Chazelle shoots for the stars and then breathtakingly frames his leads dancing together in the moonlight

If Gene Kelly, Woody Allen and Steve Martin had a chance to collaborate, the result might be La La Land, the remarkable new movie by precocious young writer/director Damien Chazelle.

With its candy-coated color palette and Emma Stone's earth-shattering performance, there's plenty of love found within La La Land.
November 19, 2017
To call La La Land amazing would be an understatement. Damien Chazelle's new LA-set musical is absolute perfection.

Here it is: the musical that won an Oscar but had the statuette taken away one minute later.

Gosling shines as a prickly Jazz purist, who conceals his emotions while Stone stands out as the sparkly girl, whose eyes speak a million words. Together they are magical and so is this eternal love ballad that will change the way you look at life.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
October 17, 2017
Gosling's effortless-looking performance is relaxed, understated and, thanks to months of piano lessons, totally convincing. But it's Stone who captures the heart, with a performance that runs the full emotional gamut.
