Period comedy drama written and directed by Damien Chazelle. Set in 1920s Los Angeles, Babylon (2022) takes place during Hollywood’s transition from silent film to talkies. A tale of outsized ambition and outrageous excess, it traces the rise and fall of multiple characters during an era of unbridled decadence and depravity in early Hollywood.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
