A work of great style, sharp observations and unexpected tonal shifts... It confirms Corbet as a vital and genuinely special voice in filmmaking.

Great performances and the director's determination to plunge us into uncomfortable territory make it an experience you are unlikely to forget.

Vox Lux begins with fierce momentum, but ultimately succumbs to its own crushing weight, failing to make good on its vast potential.

Celeste is a pious 13-year-old naïf when in 1999 her world is rocked by a shooting that injures her significantly while crystallising her singing voice.

Vox Lux is not a perfect film, but it perfectly portrays a life half-lived. [Full review in Spanish]

Featuring a spellbinding performance from Portman, Vox Lux is an intoxicating, provocative gem with real thematic depth.

In the glittering ashes of its final performance, Vox Lux emerges as an audacious and glittering celebrity hellscape in which Portman soars as the acid-tongued diva at its centre.

The film will divide opinion but the late Scott Walker's score is wonderful.

Very strange, not wholly successful, but Jude Law is fantastic in it, and I'd always rather watch a filmmaker take a risk..."A Dark Star is Born."

Vox Lux outstrips Bohemian Rhapsody in terms of ambition and stylistic panache.

[I]t is Walker's final score prior to his death in 2019 (his second for Corbet) that really elevates a cautionary tale to true grandeur.

In this fascinating, darkly funny and operatic examination of fame, Corbet's philosophy echoes Celeste's: "You wanted a show. I'll give them a show.".
May 2, 2019
Beautifully directed by the former actor Brady Corbet...this is a dark and sometimes unnerving dissection of contemporary culture, and the violence and sensuality that drive it.

Vox Lux did its best to put me off it, but failed.

Corbet's willingness to approach his subject matter with the freedom of a novelist or a painter and push the form on a scale that feels simultaneously grand and intimate is thrilling to watch.

An unflinching cautionary tale on the price of fame.

Corbet's thesis that a world in thrall to spectacle risks conflating hedonism with horror has a strong whiff of the undergraduate about it. In practice, though, his movie is a satisfying experience that consistently resists hysteria.

Vox Lux does what good pop songs do - it shushes your doubts and quickens your pulse.

[Vox Lux] is dazzlingly ambitious and phenomenally well acted, if indulgently edited and abruptly concluded.

A dark star is born in this intriguing if weirdly anticlimactic and undeveloped new film from Brady Corbet.
