4. La La Land

Directed by Damien Chazelle. La La Land is an ambitious musical that is not in a classic musical genre, the dance number are great but not unbelievably spectacular, which I think that works great for this film starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Everything is on the edge of make-belief; especially in the hazy superficial LA where everyone is pretending to be someone they’re not. The film skips and taps out of reality completely, with the world itself becoming a kind of perfectly Technicolor decorated film set through which our two loversexist, as if they can’t believe life could be so picture-perfect.
