A Star is Born rarely stops seeming manufactured; it can't disguise its manipulations or the process of the storytelling. You see the tangled strings, not the puppets.
The trouble with rock 'n' roll in A Star Is Born is that there isn't any. The soundtrack is filled with homogenized harmonics passing for rock, but not a single song is good enough even to be counterfeit.
Barbra Streisand's fantastic singing voice shows to the best advantage her incredible talent. The movie falls short of greatness, but it compares more than favorably not only with the usual concert film but also with the current love stories on film.
The new A Star Is Born has the rare distinction of being a superlative remake.
This version vaunts its modernity by vulgarising everything in sight.
A transistorized remake, louder than ever, but very small in terms of its being about anything whatsoever.
A Star Is Born presents Streisand in an appealing and sympathetic role, and Kristofferson provides the perfect balance. In his toughest dramatic assignment to date, he is exceptionally good.
Too often director Frank Pierson appears to be allowing his players to act the scene as they think fit rather than under his guidance.
It is ironic that the star system itself has killed A Star is Born, a film written to expose that system for just this kind of destructiveness.
Gloriously over the top, lurid, self-obsessed; it's no surprise I've developed a liking for this. Kristofferson absolutely holds the narrative together, bringing a sense of realism even within this crazy world; Streisand's performances are showstopping.
I swear, I meant to roll my eyes; yet as the stage lights faded and swelled, I found myself starting to cry instead.
The movie's basic problem is that we simply cannot believe that Streisand and Kristofferson are in the throes of a passionate love affair.
want to see this because it won best comedy or musical picture at the golden globes
Barbra Streisand is bizarrely miscast and has no chemistry whatsoever with Kris Kristofferson, which makes it baffling to see a movie so completely lost about what it is doing, as it can't even realize that its two singing characters would never have the same public in real life.
Very good movie. As always Barbara Streisand has a phonoemenal voice and despite Kris Kristostofferson's hairyness and his drug and alchohol abuse it was a very good movie.
Barbra sings like an angel but this is a crass vulgar shadow of the classic Judy version. Stick with that one
