The Tarot of La La Land


I watched La La Land this afternoon. In Gold Class no less. And I have only one thing to say..

Give it all the awards. Every single one. Stat!

Let’s explore why shall we?

But beware, *spoilers* follow…

For starters, it’s a work of art that’s incredibly beautiful to behold.

Ace Wands

Ace of Wands: A freakin’ artistic masterpiece

All the work of one writer and director, Damien Chazille.

King Wands

King of Wands: What a talent!

The film charts the relationship between actress Mia and pianist Sebastian.

The Lovers

The Lovers: Nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more

The story traces the different stages of their relationship. It is literally divided up into chapters: Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter again.

The Wheel Of Fortune

Wheel of Fortune: The ups and downs. The cycle we go through in relationships.

It’s a REAL story, describing a credible relationship, with likeable but flawed protagonists. Do you know how unusual that is in the movies?

The Sun

The Sun: Being real

Plus, there’s singing and dancing that doesn’t feel daggy and out-of-place. Again, do you know how unusual that is?

6 Cups

Six of Cups: Believing the illusion

Although, personally, I didn’t love the opening scene set on a motorway.

The Chariot

The Chariot: Peeps doing weird things on cars

But that was the only flaw I could find.

Have you seen La La Land? What did you think?
