A movie like La la Land is loved by the people who have open hearts and Imaginative minds. Truly a beautiful movie with dynamic uses of film and music that will clutch your soul with every fiber of your being. If you except the overall lesson of the film and take in the overall production as a whole then there is no possible way you couldn’t adore it. I think the people who don’t like it just have the issue with the fact that it wasn’t the generic ending they had been rooting for… but an ending that is so raw and beautiful like the reality it shows, the bitter sweet lesson that will have you sobbing.
“In science it often happens that scientists say, ‘You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’ and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.” ― Carl Sagan
