Awesome piece. One would think the access to music via all the streaming platforms would mean deeper music libraries. But, you hit it on the nose when you mentioned people are choosing breadth over depth.
Phenomenal piece of writing, even if I tend to lean a different way on some parts. “Someone in the Crowd” is my favorite number in the film — both visually and musically. Chazelle gets to show off his directing skills, and the song has not left my head since watching. Regardless of the different opinions, this is a joy to read.
