Damien Chazelle’s “Babylon” Film Has Received Mixed Reviews

“Babylon,” a historical comedy by Damien Chazelle that explores the extravagance of the early days of Hollywood has been given a behind-the-scenes look by Paramount. First impressions have poured in after a sneak preview Monday night at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

The 188-minute epic marks Chazelle’s return to awards season after he won the best director Oscar at the age of 36 in 2016 for his direction of “La La Land.” His subsequent movie about Neil Armstrong, “First Man” and his Sundance sensation, “Whiplash” both made big impacts in their respective prize runs.

Babylon” stars Tobey Maguire, Diego Calva, Li Jun Li and Jovan Adepo in addition to Margot Robbie, Diego Calva, and Brad Pitt. Federico Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita,” Robert Altman’s “Nashville” and “The Godfather,” according to director Damien Chazelle were the “old-school epics that managed, via a handful of characters to portray a society transforming.”

After expressing some apprehension before the screening, Variety awards editor Clayton Davis seems to lean toward loving the film, describing it as a “high octane” journey with a better first half than a second.

Despite the fact that Chazelle “may be the most confident director in Hollywood now, of course, he’s also got some of the worst instincts out there,” Ryan Swen, a member of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, wasn’t a fan at all.

Although there have been replies on social media, Paramount has not yet set a deadline for complete reviews. On December 23, “Babylon” is expected to open in theaters all around North America. Initially, Paramount had planned to premiere the movie in select theaters on Christmas Day before widening it to everyone in early January. It has been assumed that the studio’s choice to transition to a broad release was a vote of confidence in “Babylon.”
