It's like watching someone solve a knock-off Rubik's cube by simply peeling off all the stickers.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

A work of art of this calibre undermines the entire system, explores the vacuity of celebrity culture, exposes the inhumanity of the PR machine.

Powered along by Portman and Cassidy, Vox Lux has a lot to say, but, despite being very good in parts, misses out on its place at the top of the charts.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10

Dazzling cinematography and haunting music.

[The second half] of the film is meandering and pointless, underlining previously nuanced themes ... without meaningful development nor surprises.

Vox Lux is truly invested in how pop music functions as salvation for many, even if it leads to damnation for one particularly jaded individual.
February 27, 2019
It aims, it fires, it misses every target.

I suspect, however, that Corbet's aims are actually more modest than many critics have credited: to create a fun, irony-drenched visual story that skips through a frenzied life with the rhythm of a video clip.
February 21, 2019
For all its sound and fury, Vox Lux ultimately signifies very little.
February 21, 2019
Despite Natalie Portman in the lead and original music by Sia, this unfocussed drama about fame struggles to land the big, grim and obvious points it desperately wants to make.
February 21, 2019
Vox Lux is a confounding, derivative and self-indulgent piece of work[...] and yet it is also a visually vibrant film that manages to challenge the audience by being provocative, shocking and illuminating with its portrayal of the dangers of stardom.

Quite brilliant and unbelievably entertaining, while being thoroughly uncompromising ... It all pays off, riotously, wonderfully, exuberantly, brilliantly, with integrity, grace and skill ... This is the first great film of 2019. Exceptional.

But unlike many show-off stylists, [Corbet] rarely becomes monotonous, thanks to his dedication to catching the audience off-guard.

The result is, despite a compelling performance from Portman... a surprisingly inert experience.

I was sucked in. It seared my memory, and I'm not done wrestling with it. Like the work of any interesting artist, it demands to be wrestled with. If that's your jam, Vox Lux might be for you too.

The concert scenes, and there are quite a lot of them, are certainly spectacular, and the performances, Portman's especially, are terrifically powerful.

February 8, 2019
Stellar, ambitious directing and an insightful script unafraid to take risks, it's one of the best films of the year.

Imagine a Wes Anderson movie soaked in pop-star excess and with a heavy dose of gun violence and you get Brady Corbet's Vox Lux, a movie that feels simultaneously precious and pretentious.
February 5, 2019
...somehow manages to be simultaneously moving, cynical and facetious... a must-see.
Full Review | Original Score: 18/20

Interesting to watch, but fall short as full studies of complicated women.
