I have now seen La La Land four times and for anyone that has two young children can attest, that is the highest compliment that I can possibly give a film. With increasing time constraints, it's really difficult to re-watch a film once, let alone four times.
And yet, I can't wait to watch La La Land again.
That is the true power of La La Land and the reason that it deserves to be remembered as a truly great film, not just a punchline about award show flubs. I'm fairly confident that in five years from now we will still be talking about the impact of La La Land and the resurgence in musicals.
I have watched my fair share of musicals over the years and yes, I do count White Christmas as one of my favorite Christmas movies of all time...
