My words are hungry

I was particularly fascinated by Adam Driver’s life story, from him enlisting in the Marines and then trotting into Hollywood. The process was an especially agonising one for the actor as he was medically discharged from the Marines after a severe sternum injury sustained from a mountain-biking accident.

Review: La La Land

A bit of madness is key to give us to color to see Who knows where it will lead us? Damien Chazelle’s Oscar winner Whiplash back in 2014 was a cacophony of intensity that delineated the pressure, sacrifice and pain that musicians face in a rat race in order to be considered as the best….
