Music is beside the point here. Vox Lux is concerned with the desensitizing powers of idol worship, with all its relevant connections. It understands the lure of escape and questions the effects of that desire.
...there is much to congratulate Brady Corbet's second feature on. These varying grand ambitions, however, never quite harmonise to full effect, leaving VOX LUX feeling more diminuendo than crescendo as it progresses.
A difficult at times to watch film, especially the scenes of violence in the school and on the beach resort, used probably as only context, still seem really fresh in everyone's minds which might put some viewers off.
The entire film rests on Natalie Portman. There's no question about her commitment to this role, but we think that it's too over the top and becomes tedious, especially with it's abrupt end which left us in stunned silence.
