Atom User Reviews for Vox Lux
Man, that was a hell of a ride. And Natalie Portman, wow. Watch it.
The most WTF movie of the year... beat Sorry To Bother You by a mile
Thought it would never end
This was a very depressing movie. From start to finish and the music was over dramatic., the narration was to me lazy writing.
more realistoc of a pop star's behavior then something like A Star is Born. original and surprisingly disturbing, a very brave film
This movie was awful. This movie doesn't know what "show, don't tell" means, some of the casting decisions were terrible, the songs were forgettable, and most of the things they DO show go nowhere. I recommend that you skip this one.
The last 10 minutes were good.
Beneath the glitzy surface of Vox Lux — the title of one of Celeste’s studio recordings — lie deeper superficialities, so many that I found myself admiring the movie’s wild ambition while grinding my teeth at its pretentiousness.
Corbet's high-caliber melodrama combines food for thought with sense-blitzing spectacle. Between screaming tantrums and booming anthems, it leaves us with a nagging sense that history never quite repeats itself, but sometimes rhymes. Usually to a thumping disco beat.
Vox Lux is intellectually charged spectacle, with one foot in the Euro-art tradition and the other ankle-deep in the pop zeitgeist.
