Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical is authentic, energetic and fun
I think Lin-Manuel Miranda is incredibly talented, and thought “Hamilton” was incredible (although I’ve only seen it on Disney+, and sadly never on stage.) Needless to say, I was looking forward to this musical slice-of-life set in the vibrant neighborhood of Washington Heights in uptown Manhattan. The film centers around a bodega owner named Usnavi, whose parents immigrated to the United States from the Dominican Republic. Joyous and filled with energy, the movie’s music is often incredibly well done. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s lyrics are fast, kinetic, and clever, combined with plenty of well-choreographed singing and dancing. The film also does an outstanding job showing the diversity, pluralism and cultural heritage of Washington Heights, and the various communities and cultures found there.
With its catchy music and thoughtfully inclusive cultural representation, the film is certainly a crowd pleaser. I’m happy to say that the audience I saw it with applauded after many of the musical numbers, and also gave a hearty applause at the end. It’s certainly great to see an audience in a theater respond to a film like that again. That said, the film does fall short of greatness for a few reasons. It could have used more of a plot in between its musical numbers, which is part of the reason why it’s not quite as impactful as something like “Hamilton.” Usnavi is a generally engaging protagonist, but some of the other characters could have been more developed. Finally, the film does run a bit too long. Being a bit thin on plot but comparatively lacking in impressive musical set pieces compared to the rest of the film, the second act certainly feels like it drags a bit in comparison to the first and third acts. Yet despite these criticisms, there’s something truly radiating about the film’s vibrancy and joyful enthusiasm–which is, frankly, what we all need right now. Recommended. 7.5/10.
Too long and yet completely unfinished
Way, WAY too many story threads with many of them and many characters left hanging. Way too long and yet feels completely unfinished. Very disappointed.
