La La Land

I knew I wanted to see the movie, but I had no expectations at all. In the beginning I thought it was going to be two painful hours because it seemed a bit awkward and hard to get (perhaps I was too upset about my bagel that I just had been told not to eat during the movie). I am not a big fan of musicals and that was probably the main reason I was skeptical at first, but after watching it, I realise that it would not have been the same at all without that element. Anyway, it did not take long until I was hooked. Ryan Gosling used to be just a face to me but now he is a character with charisma as well, and I finally realised that he is, indeed, very attractive. I suppose I just needed to know if he had a voice, movements and feelings as well. Yes, he seems perfectly human.

If this film were an Instagram filter it would be called Pink Velvet or something because it was so cosy; I felt like I was floating on pink shimmering clouds throughout. It was really intriguing and I kept getting goosebumps out of excitement. I cannot remember the last time I saw a really good movie like this one. I was touched, a lot of emotions and I Lo Lo Loved it! The wonderful settings, the marvellous jazz tunes, the spot on lyrics, the simple but brilliant plot, the effortless humour, the splendid chemistry between the actors and last but not least, an excellent message, but I do not want to spoil it all. It was a very thought out film and it was made in a certain beautiful way that I am incapable of explaining right here, right now – you will have to (and I think you should) see it to understand.

I have been feeling a bit messed up lately. La La Land did me good because it turned out to be such a feel-good movie; a cheerful theme with a focus on the positive. Although life can be tough at times, it does not get tougher than what you allow it to be. Are you with me? With the right attitude you will get far, and after seeing this film, it feels like nothing is unmanageable anymore. So, I guess the only thing that remains for me to say is: stay positive, follow your dreams and Lo, Lo, Love.
