    ”Please don't do anything stupid.”

    This was the only film in David Fincher’s filmography that I had absolutely zero knowledge on. I had never heard whether it was a hidden gem or not, if the plot was anything more than what the title gave off, or if it was even something worth checking out for the simple fact it’s by Fincher; nothing!

    "I guess I'll see you in the movies."

    At the mere age of 31, and with just two feature films under his belt, Damien Chazelle has become one of the most daring and passionate filmmakers working today. His first outing, the brutal and intense Whiplash, introduced us to Chazelle with big eyes and having us look out for anything his name is attached to. Now, two years later, he returns to the directors chair to bring us an ode…
