Comment: Justin Hurwitz may be the most gifted songwriter in the States today but if he is then where is the music to back it up? La La Land is hurt so much by not just the singers, which figures when actors sing, but the songs, which is a big big big no no. There isn’t one great song here, there isn’t one good song here. There are a couple that work as set pieces but they aren’t remotely good enough. Easily the worst thing aboiut a pretty darn good movie, you’ll come out of La La Land humming Emma’s shoes.
