La La Land video compares film to its classic cinematic inspirations

Joey Nolfi@joeynolfi

La La Land is riding high this week after the film scored a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations, and a new video is diving into the cinematic predecessors that inspired Damien Chazelle’s hit movie musical.

Edited by Sara Preciado, the clip compares La La Land‘s visuals to those found in various films released over the years, including obvious genre brethren like 1978’s Grease, 1969’s Sweet Charity, 1961’s West Side Story, 1952’s Singin’ in the Rain, and the 2001 song-and-dance extravaganza Moulin Rouge!
