La La Land is actually a love story for jazz, with a leading male character who likes to mansplain very loudly and intently whenever he gets the chance about just how important jazz music is and how he will be the saviour jazz music needs.
While (the film has) an optimistic, positive message, it loses potency by showing just how little room there is for real life - with all its compromises and challenges - in the dreams of its main characters.
It's a pity that La La Land fled from cliche to incur in what is consider cliche. At its best, the movie flirts with the ghosts of professional frustration, only to return to the most rude pretentions. [Full review in Spanish]
