This version of “La La Land” features the filmmaker’s distinctive dark, surrealist style, a far cry from Chazelle’s original film. “Everyone knows that ‘La La Land’ is the feel-good, singing and dancing movie of the year,” reads the description of the clip. “And with Damien Chazelle nominated for Best Director in this weekend’s Academy Awards, we wondered what the film would look like with an entirely different director and tone. This episode of Trailer Mix brings you a darker, more surrealist version courtesy of David Lynch.”
