Four stars: 'La La Land' is worth the trip

“La La Land” takes a fresh approach to the classic Hollywood musical, to heartfelt and exhilarating effect. Working from his own screenplay, director Damien Chazelle (“Whiplash”) understands that musicals exist in a state of heightened reality, in which bursting into song is just another mode of expression. And in Stone and Gosling, he has actors who can dive into that emotional flow and carry us along with them.

Gosling is terrific as the coolly introspective yet disarmingly charming Sebastian. And Stone is deservedly generating Oscar buzz for her portrayal of an artist who can’t quite believe she’ll ever be anything other than a barista.

At a time when musicals seldom grace the big screen, “La La Land” is practically a miracle.

Four stars: 'Jackie' captures a moment in time

“Jackie,” one of the best and most ambitious films of the year, is not a conventional biopic. Working from an intricate screenplay by Noah Oppenheim (“The Maze Runner”), Chilean director Pablo Larrain (“Neruda”) conjures a multifaceted portrait of a woman under the influence of politics, celebrity and grief. Larrain deftly balances mainstream moviemaking with an art-film sensibility, which is all the more impressive considering that this is his English-language debut.

Portman is simply brilliant, getting to the essence of Jackie without resorting to a mere impersonation. Particularly in her scenes with Crudup, she’s mesmerizing even when she’s disagreeable. It’s an Oscar-worthy performance.

This may not be the “Jackie” you know, but it’s a vision of the former first lady that’s nonetheless fascinating.
