The line in the film said by Sebastian, "that's L.A. They worship everything and they value nothing," was actually added in by Ryan Gosling himself, when he heard his real life girlfriend, Eva Mendes, mention it as a joke. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, Mia is wearing a woman's blouse (buttons on left) when she leaves work for an audition and bumps into a customer who spills coffee on her. During the audition she is still wearing a woman's blouse, but when she leaves you can see that she is wearing a man's shirt (buttons on right) as she unzips her jacket and enters the elevator. When she gets to her apartment and flops on the bed, she is back to wearing a woman's blouse. See more »

Damien Chazelle is a young director who loves and knows movies, from Federico Fellini to Jacques Demy. Hallellujah! Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone go back to inspire us forward. What's more surprising than anything else is the feel of amateurishness in the dancing in the singing. So refreshing not to have a sleek but empty experience. Damian Chazelle' Whiplash was a brilliant preview of forthcoming attractions. I would love to see a thriller directed by Chazelle, something like Shadow Of A Doubt or even a glossy damsel in distress story like Midnight Lace. That's what happens when we discover a new and startling talent. You want to see him do everything. I have a feeling this young artist will.
