This is high melodrama of a kind rarely seen these days, or executed this well at any time.
January 10, 2020
A fantastic first film from a great actor turned director with a stellar performance by a Queen of Pop who might become a star in a totally different medium.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10

Like all the best love stories their relationship reaches out beyond the screen, and asks the audience to experience the highs and lows, as if they were these characters.

A Star Is Born is a beautiful, powerful, and tragic depiction of not simply the life, glamor, fun and fame of music super stardom, but also of a life riddled with addictions and self-destructive behaviors.

[Bradley Cooper] didn't disappoint. Delivering probably the most lived-in, carefully layered performance of his career, his Jackson is both a creature of charisma and self-pity.

Both leads do incredibly nuanced work, and while [Lady] Gaga's performance is incredible, so is [Bradley] Cooper's.

It's a splendid Hollywood Romance, sure, but the little textural details - the licks of sweaty hair plastered to shiny, crinkled foreheads - tell of frailty and authenticity.

A Star Is Born is layered, fulfilling, and moving to the point where only singing can properly capture the emotional complexity of some of the film's heavier moments.
August 2, 2019
A Star is Born is best when it forgets what it's trying to be about and is just about the relationship at its core. Nothing more.

Even in its fourth rendition, A Star is Born hits the right emotional highs.

You should see A Star is Born... no questions asked.

It is wonderful to see how such a story can still be alive and be so universal. [Full Review in Spanish]

Director [Bradley] Cooper knows what he needs to get out of Gaga and what power she has when she is near a microphone. Gaga also surprises by matching Cooper pound for a pound as they share the frame.

Having wowed the cognoscenti at the Venice International Film Festival, Bradley Cooper's directorial first has touched down in cinemas amid a blaze of rapturous publicity.

This film has it all, and the performances are beyond expectations. Cooper was already an excellent actor, but he has set a high bar for himself now as a director. And this will not be the last time you will see Lady Gaga acting in a lead role.
June 3, 2019
The moment when she first steps up to that mic is one of the most breathtaking things we've seen on screen in recent memory, a moment of iconic weight that feels as if we're seeing Lady Gaga for the first time.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Cooper creates an atmosphere of intimacy that makes us feel that we are part of this adventure of success and tragedy [Full Review in Spanish]
May 28, 2019
Overall, A Star is Born soars on the chemistry of its lead performances, as we genuinely believe and appreciate Jackson and Ally's love for one another.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Bradley Cooper's directorial debut and Lady Gaga's cinematic debut hits a lot of great notes, but it's far from polished or perfect.
