If you’re gonna to feature on overdone song such as Hallelujah, it’s a great call to use Jeff Buckley’s rendition.
AMC Imax aka fake Imax.
Nice to see Chazelle changing up his visual style (not that Whiplash & La La Land we’re identical, but this is definitely a departure with some echoes of Whiplash) with the claustrophobic handheld shots. Linus Sandgren’s cinamatogprahy is a distinct contribution that helps Chezelle’s First Man take a larger leap away from his musical projects while adding a palpability to the stressful flight/crash sequences.
Very interesting that Chazelle didn’t write this one. Helped with First Man…
