Should have called this Babyl-long - right? While it has a pretty killer cast and an even better soundtrack, I think Damien Chazelle thinks this is twice as smart as he thinks it is and only half as much entertaining as it should be.

We see elephant diarrhea shitting all over the camera, someone getting a golden shower, a rat getting eaten alive, deaths on film sets that get brushed aside, suicides, careers failing, a toxic work environment, and an Eye Wide …
