La La Land reflects the classic musicals just like Peter Jackson's The Hobbit reflects The Lord of the Rings: you can recognize the inspiration, but can't avoid thinking the originals were much better. [Full review in Portuguese.]
Don't get me wrong, LA LA LAND is fun and cutesy, and made me leave the theater with a big, goofy smile on my face. But there's one distinct difference between good movie musicals and great movie musicals.
A film with a scenic exuberance that resembles a patina in primary colors of the very vintage almanac of a disappeared and endearing world, and that tries to mythologize to Los Angeles like the capital of the dreams. [Full review in Spanish]
The story is solid, albeit a bit predictable at times, the songs, choreography, and costume design are all so stunning, and the cinematography and lighting are the best I've seen in years. Definitely give La La Land a visit.
