Oscars 2017: Why La La Land worked better than anyone dreamed
La La Land is packing moviegoers in like an esoteric jazz club that suddenly becomes the it spot. Life, it seems, is following the script
New York: Brassy love ballads, Technicolor dialogue, and a smattering of soft-shoe–La La Land had all the makings of a blockbuster, in the 1940s at least. Today, the mass market of moviegoers prefer action to romance, aliens to artists, and above all else the blossoming genre of superhero bros in tights.
