People who like to turn movies into sporting events are already calling this fall a “rematch” between Jenkins and Damien Chazelle, whose La La Land competed for several of the same awards back in 2016 (and won Chazelle the Best Director Oscar). Chazelle’s latest is a dramatization of the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, reuniting the filmmaker with his La La star Ryan Gosling as first man on the moon Neil Armstrong. Advance word from Telluride and Venice is that it’s a barn burner, and hey, bonus, it’s already prompted the first of presumably many dumb fall movie controversies.
