jaz’s review published on Letterboxd:
watched this film for the first time in the theater. although it wasn’t my first watch, it was a beautiful and unforgettable experience.
this is definitely my favorite musical-turned-film. it might even be my favorite musical film as well. being a puerto rican, it’s refreshing to watch a film that is centered on hispanic pride. as i said in my first review, it’s nice seeing my culture being displayed in this light.
i walked out of the theater being given a sense of community and pride in myself. i also had the urge to rewatch it for the third time. i’m never gonna get sick of watching in the heights
