La La Land by Damien Chazelle

April 2013 draft.

Rather amazing to see how much Damien Chazelles story changed from this early draft, to the film that was released over three years later. The core concept is very similar, but the numerous subtle differences in dialogue and structure present a film with a much different, and sadly, less magical tone than the film that was released. It’s still a great read, but the extra two years Mr. Chazelle spent refining the script (along with the year he spent editing the film in post) make this early draft feel more flawed than it really is.

Reading the final few pages still caused me to well up with emotion, but some of that credit must go to the Justin Hurwitz score that has been playing on loop in my subconscious for weeks.

This is the last time we’ll ever see them dance, and they seem to recognize that, so graceful and poised are their movements... Remember -- this is a romance more perfect than a real romance could ever be...

In my heart, the dance goes on.

La La Land review: you'll leave with a tear in your eye and a song in your heart

T he shine is coming off of La La Land. The box-office smash and owner of a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations premiered to rapturous reviews at film festivals last fall, but in the weeks that followed, and as the film screened for more and more critics, a backlash began to grow. Representatives of various marginalized communities — women, African Americans, and jazz lovers — emerged to take the film down a peg. Every piece of art is now politicized and parsed for its problematic elements. These complaints may take some of the joy out of a film intended only to entertain, but they also reveal vital perspectives that have been hidden for too long from our white-male dominated discourse.

our society has become too obsessed with money and greed

It stars Ryan Gosling as a jazz pianist and Emma Stone as an aspiring actress, who meet and fall in love while pursuing their dreams in Los Angeles.
