I really enjoyed this otherwise standard musical for the most part because of the fine performances by Lady Gaga, Cooper, Elliot, Gavron and Dave Chappelle. It is enjoyable despite the fact that the story is painfully clichéd.

The chemistry between Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga is striking; throughout he is mesmerising, she is a joy. Though this is a story told very much from Jackson Maine's point of view.

The soundtrack is thoughtful, emotional, and difficult to imagine being brought to life by anybody other than Gaga and her diverse vocal talent, which feels right at home on the big screen.

I wanted to see her side, internally, where that relationship was going as she was getting catapulted to fame...I would definitely tell you to go download this soundtrack.

Transposed into the era of sudden fame and instant shame, the film glistens as a cautionary tale about self-respect, self-delusion and self-destruction...what is especially admirable is the film's fidelity to the original's heart-breaking final reel.

No matter what goes on in the film dramatically, everything always comes together because the soundtrack is happening, it's just happening, as I heard someone say in the Magic Johnson Harlem theater.
