In the Heights

In the Heights ★★★★★

I just finished watching In the Heights and it was obviously a masterpiece. Here is my non spoiler review.

Positives:

Let me start with the obvious. The soundtrack is the best soundtrack I have heard this year so far and I don't think any other film will top it. My favorite song here is When the Sun Goes Down.

The dance choreography is spectacular in every musical number.

The acting is really great especially from Anthony Ramos and Olga Merediz.

The writing is fantastic. It's the feel good movie of the year.

Negatives:

None

Awards Potential:

Whenever I review an awards friendly film, I have to talk about it's awards potential. I think Olga Merediz for Supporting Actress is the most likely nomination for this film. I also think this will get nominated for Best Picture. I even think this has a better shot at getting nominated for Best Picture than West Side Story. Also, I think this will get nominated for Cinematography. I also think that it can get nominated for Film Editing as well.

Overall: In the Heights is definitely the best movie I have seen this year so far and it is going to be difficult for any film to top it.

Grade: 10/10 Masterpiece Movie
