Two things you will take away from Vox Lux. How accountable should the music industry be when it comes to senseless mass shootings and why we make superstars out of ordinary people only to kick them when their down.
Those who manage to take the message of redemption and loss of innocence that the film offers us will enjoy this psychedelic drama that although it is not a complete disaster can be a difficult work to appreciate. [Full Review in Spanish]
Vox Lux is an antidote to other recent films on music stardom, eschewing the usual narrative route to give its audience both the joy and discomfort around the role of trauma in addiction and the pressure of fame.
This drama set in the pop music world has plenty to say, but its delivery of its message doesn't quite work. Still, Portman's nervy performance and the movie's dazzling cinematography and haunting music make it worth a look.
