The ambition of this film impresses enough to warrant seeing it.

Corbet's work is a big, sloppy wet kiss to all manner of rise-and-fall clichés. Yet it mostly works.

September 7, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Even while being anti-pop, this movie isn't anti-pleasure; its craft is sumptuous and encompassing.

September 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Vox Lux is so grandly ambitious, so unabashedly its own experience, that it's impossible to dismiss despite its flaws. You may not want to play it on repeat, but this is a song that demands to be heard at full volume.

A deliciously rich treatise on toxic fame and weapons of mass seduction.

"Vox Lux" paints a sharp, shellacked portrait of a ghost in the celebrity machine.
