Yesterday, I watched the movie musical, La La Land with my mom. It was such an enjoyable experience especially considering the fact that I am a massive musical fan. It was in fact a really good movie.
One thing that really stood out to me was the cinematography. The way they showed the city or the moments with the sillouthetes. As a matter of fact, all of the cinematography all impressed me.
It was such a beautiful story. It was about Mia and Sebastian and them having big dreams. It showed just how hard it is to be any kind of artist. It takes place in La and Mia is trying to be an actress and Sebastian wants to eventually own a Jazz Club. At times the two of them felt discouraged, but ultimately never gave up. It also had very lovely songs and one of the biggest things I want in a musical is to like the songs. One song in particular was special, which was “The Audition”, but also really liked the title song, “City of Stars”.
I think this movie opened up perfectly with everyone dancing on a LA highway at the time when traffic wasn’t even moving. Seeing the dancing in that moment was incredible and gave you a hint of what it is come. This movie is filled with so many wonderful dance momenst. Dance is such an unique part of musicals. What was fascinating about this movie is that it reminded you of the Golden Age of movies since some scenes were very similar to some of those musicals.
So it was such a beautiful movie with incredible acting by those who played Mia and Sebastian. The cinematography was beautiful and so was the story. Having the dance in it really added to experience. Even the songs were wonderful to listen to.
What are your thoughts on this movie?
