As opposed to offering glancing impressions or hors d’oeuvres-like samplings, this La La Land trailer (which I ignored yesterday) comes very close to compressing the full experience of this amazing, spirit-lifting, near-perfect film. I’ve seen it twice and I’m at least good for another two or three viewings before Oscar night. I still say that Manchester By The Sea is richer, heavier and more formidable, but La La Land got better the second time I saw it (at the Savannah Film Festival) and that means something. The only problem I have is that Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone‘s singing voices aren’t what they could or should be. But it’s not that much of a problem.
