    Hollywood Fallacies by Damien Chazelle
    This is nothing more than one more of the savage and exacerbated satires that came from Mel Brooks, through Natural Born Killers, Woody Allen's Celebrity and revived in The Wolf of Wall Street, these types of films make money today, and Chazelle was no stranger, from his hand this script came out with many lies about Hollywood, and I really think that the director would have seen a hundred documentaries and read many books, but it is known that many of those excesses are fallacies, Chazelle knows that if he had If this happened, there would not have been Hollywood today. The film follows many generic scenes through stories previously told, even the ending seems taken from some Biopic made for television. It would be fair to say that the cinematography is very good but not surprising, in the sex scenes Chazelle did not go further, which is strange due to the overflow of the subject matter here, but he directed it well and Margot Robbie always gave her best as an actress . But we remind Chazelle that Hollywood is not lost or abandoned, decadent, vicious, disgusting, or delinquent, as he thinks it is, and that remembering how everything was at the beginning was not the best, because the best has always been and will be to come.

    best movie 2022
    This is the first time I didn't notice how 3 hours of the movie went by. The timing of the music and the movement of the characters are so consistent that your brain can't stop receiving dopamine. This is the only film that really managed to show the natural history of hollywood. I'm very disappointed that this movie failed at the box office. I hope this doesn't affect Chazelle's next films. I'm so overwhelmed with emotions that I don't want to spoil anything, you need to watch it. Trust me it's worth it. This is what a quality movie attraction should look like.

    P.s. Unless you're a prude and afraid of the sight of naked breasts or drugs.
