I've seen this movie 4 times,and every time with out fail I felt the same wonderful combination of happiness and sadness. The fist I saw this movie while watching the opening scene I was expecting it to be the same old traditional musical, which I don't really like, but boy was I wrong. I love that the first half of the movie is basically a love letter to the old musical, they're cliché and a bit unrealistic but still so beautiful. The fact that the opening scene is in one take makes me love it even more, it flows together so flawlessly just thinking about it makes me smile. All the musical numbers flow into the storyline beautifully, they fit like puzzle pieces and don't make you feel like "oh they're singing now what's going on". The music in the movie is also amazing, Justin Hurwitz is officially one of my favorite composers. For me personally I feel as though there are 3 main characters Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), Mia (Emma Stone) and the music. I consider the music a character because you notice it, how could you not, and it does this without completely taking you out of the movie. I could go on and on about this movie forever but in final words, Ryan and Emma, AMAZING fit they're roles perfectly. I feel as though this movie just did everything right and thank you Damien Chazelle.
