La La Land’s second viewing felt so much better. With the pressure on being a hater gone, I simply loved it. In a cat-lovin’ grandma kind of way. I almost purred.
2 simple reasons:
- David Wasko - production designer extraordinaire (with Pulp Fiction and The Royal Tenenbaums under his belt). The frigging colour palette is da bomb. You gotta be a hater to hate it!
- Justin Hurwitz - piano themes written in piano theme heaven.
Plus, for real, did you actually know the title means something? As in “an euphoric dreamlike mental state detached from the harsher realities of life”. Yet another burst of purring.
