I don't know what space exploration will uncover, but I don't think it'll be exploration just for the sake of exploration. I think it'll be more the fact that it allows us to see things. That maybe we should have seen a long time ago. But just haven't been able to until now.

Chazelle's new movie isn't as good as "Whiplash" and "LaLaLand" were, but it most certainly deserves your ticket money.
The biggest problem of the movie is the script, which is pretty bland and cold and typical. But the amazing performances by Ryan Gosling and most importantly the absolutely terrific Claire Foy are there to save the film.
Also, the amazing cinematography and score helps the movie to not stuck from time to time and the final 30 minutes are just the purest cinematic experience of the year.
Go out there, find the movie and watch it! It is not the best movie of the year, but it is one pretty much great!
