I didn't want to fall in love with La La Land... but I couldn't help myself. It's a valentine to Los Angeles. And it's fuel for us dreamers. How can I resist such a flick?
For some reason, the whole time I was watching the movie, I kept thinking of the Gershwin sequence from Fantasia 2000 -- which is essentially a love letter to New York City. Both works tell us to keep reaching for the stars.
