La La Land – both a nickname for Hollywood and the transcendental place couples live in when everything is perfect. In a world where everyone can be a celebrity, this third pairing of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone reminds us why we go the movies in the first place. These star crossed lovers make Damien Chazelle’s landmark re-imagining of the movie musical sparkle in a time where song and dance are rarely coupled anymore. For so many reasons this has been sweeping the 2016 award season and it deserves all the money #IdBuyThatForADollar
Steve was so adamant about having this as a selection on the show that he called it over a month before recording. After seeing it for myself, I understand why #IdBuyThatForADollar
I convinced Steve to put the female targeted, erotic dance sequel no one thought they wanted on his watchlist and we found ourselves in a discussion about the female gaze and stripping the social stigma men have against it. Get your dollars ready because we’re gonna make it rain!
