This was a very depressing movie. From start to finish and the music was over dramatic., the narration was to me lazy writing.

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.

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.
