Where to watch Babylon

One of the most divisive films of 2022 was Babylon, a three-hour epic period piece by writer/director Damien Chazelle. Set during the late 1920s, Babylon follows the rise and fall of wide-eyed dreamers, ambitious stars, and indulgent personas in Hollywood during the transition from silent to sound films. It’s the “Wild West” in Hollywood as these characters live during a time of debauchery and depravity.

Babylon is led by an ensemble cast featuring Diego Calva (Narcos: Mexico), Margot Robbie (Birds of Prey), Brad Pitt (Bullet Train), Li Jun Li (Sex/Life), Jovan Adepo (Overlord), Jean Smart (Hacks), and Tobey Maguire (Spider-Man: No Way Home). Babylon marks Chazelle’s first directorial feature since 2018’s First Man.

There are two sides to the Babylon coin. On one side, some believe Babylon is a masterpiece that will receive its flowers years from now upon reexamination of the film. On the other side, some hate the film and view it as a bloated mess. Determining where you stand on Babylon is worth the watch alone.

The film has great performances by Robbie, Pitt, and newcomer Calva, and the score, by frequent Chazelle collaborator Justin Hurwitz, is impressive. Hurwitz is nominated for Best Original Score, and the film also received nominations for Best Production Design and Best Costume Design. At the very least, Babylon looks and sounds good.
