128 minute running time so at least 30 to 40 minutes too long. Mainly watched on ffwd. Stars bug-eyed Emma Stone and Ryan “Mouseketeer” Gosling. A modern-day musical. They’re both attractive people and it looked charming in parts, but it was way way way too long, and for that reason it’s an avoid. Is Damien Chazelle gay? Probably a popular movie with homosexuals despite the hetero romance.
Amy Nicholson wrote a good review: “… the movie is an overpriced mason jar that poaches its artificial authenticity from the past.” … “When they kiss, it’s like an apple colliding with a banana.“
