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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
February 8, 2019
Stellar, ambitious directing and an insightful script unafraid to take risks, it's one of the best films of the year.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

...somehow manages to be simultaneously moving, cynical and facetious... a must-see.
Full Review | Original Score: 18/20
February 5, 2019
Interesting to watch, but fall short as full studies of complicated women.
February 2, 2019
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.

February 1, 2019
Portman turns in the boldest performance of her career, going big as a Staten Island diva who feels less Lady Gaga than Carmela Soprano.

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]

January 14, 2019
It succeeds in spinning an audacious and provocative pop tale, and one that, incidentally, stands in opposition to the mushy earworm of a moral offered up in A Star is Born.
January 11, 2019
Natalie Portman dramatically interprets this "black swan" of pop within this dark portrait of the price of fame. [Full Review in Spanish]

Corbet's style is frequently ponderous, even "slow," but generally compelling as he explores the factory-like process of turning Celeste into a star.
Full Review | Original Score: B

The most energizing, enthralling kind of cynicism.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

[Raffey Cassidy] has a very good scene with Natalie Portman in the second act... and that is where both present an extraordinary chemistry. [Full review in Spanish]
December 23, 2018
...an ambitious film that proves to be less than the sum of its parts... but fans of Natalie Portman won't want to miss her risk-taking performance here.

December 22, 2018
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.
December 22, 2018
A film that could be a good contender for both an Oscar as well as a Razzie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 22, 2018
Bruising, fascinating, and occasionally boring, 'Vox Lux' is -- at the very least -- proof of Corbet's directorial prowess.
December 20, 2018
Vox Lux might be trying a bit too hard to impress, but that kind of feels like the whole point of this.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
December 18, 2018
A flawed but flashy social commentary drama played as a satire on this century's pop culture scene.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
December 17, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
