Culture Maven review: "Babylon"
Film Review & Podcast by c d kaplan
There are few ways to describe how much I was looking forward to viewing Damien Chazelle’s wannabe blockbuster about Hollywoodland in the Roaring 20s.
I was smitten at first look of the trailer.
It stars the stars of stars — Brad Pitt and Margo Robbie.
The subject matter — LA in its early days, moviedom in that critical period when transitioning to sound, those hedonistic 20s — certainly intrigued.
So, what does your inveterate movie considerer think of this three hour epic?
Is it worth investing that much of your time?
Listen to my podcast.
