Movie Diary: I'm slightly obsessed with the new 'La La Land' trailer
Simply put: "La La Land" looks like a movie custom-built for a film nerd like me.
The vibrant colors. Bold, unapologetic throwback musical. Jazz! Written/directed by Damien Chazelle (who also wrote/directed one of the best films of 2014, "Whiplash").
I already want to own the soundtrack right now! And the Dec. 16 wide theatrical release date is too far away. Although I live in Seattle, I will absolutely fly down to Los Angeles if I can get my hands on a screening pass for the AFI FEST gala screening. And even if I can't make it to LA, I'm already looking into buying tix for the late November screening at the Whistler Film Festival.
I'm already absolutely sold on "La La Land." :)
