Audacious, retro, funny and heartfelt, La La Land is the latest great musical for people who don’t like musicals – and will slap a mile-wide smile across the most miserable of faces.
— Ian Freer, Empire
La La Land isn’t a masterpiece (and on some level it wants to be). Yet it’s an elating ramble of a movie, ardent and full of feeling, passionate but also exquisitely controlled.
— Owen Gleiberman, Variety
It’s a film that re-enacts, with rare originality, a classic role for the movie medium—escapist entertainment in troubled times.
— Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
For a film that starts with a slightly campy musical number that could alienate viewers just as easily as charm them, this romance sure makes the leap to greatness quickly.
