Okay, so I just wanna talk about this shot from La La Land for a second. First off, this is from the end of the opening number (”Another Day of Sun”). Not only is this shot beautifully composed and executed, the color scheme is so pleasing, and there’s SO MUCH DEPTH. Also, this number is one continuous take with no cuts whatsoever which means that after running around catching everything happening among the cars and dancers, the camera operator and director still got this shot to wrap it all up. This is hands down one of the best shots on film in a long, long time, and I love La La Land so very much.
Ok but as much as I love newtina, I’m SO GLAD that they didn’t kiss at the end of the first film. Like so so much bc that would be just so out of character? Esp for newt, and tbh with the slow burn the character development will be there when it eventually happens (prob in the last film???).
But yeah, so happy the directors didn’t go forcing anything bc that would have put me off tbh.
