    ★★★½

    I'm so torn on this. I went in with decidedly high expectations and, man, were they juuuuuuust within reach. A musical lives and dies by the strength of its music, and thankfully the soundtrack is an absolute earworm (Fools who Dream and A Lovely Night being standouts for me, as well as the cast numbers toward the beginning). Everything else though? I mean, dazzling cinematography. Appropriately plot-serving production design and costumes. Ryan and Emma are adequate. Chazelle's direction goes in…

    ★★★½

    I watched about 30 minutes of this movie in Colombia with dubbed over Spanish voices before the reel malfunctioned. And I was quite enjoying it, it seemed...magical. Cut to a few weeks later when I got to catch it in English stateside and, though it didn't feel quite as magical, delightful still comes to mind, with some, naturally, fierce VFX work on display. Special commendation to Neel Seethi for delivering a performance full of heart at such a young age surrounded by the blues and greens of a soundstage and nothing more.
