      Critics Consensus

      Intriguing albeit flawed, Vox Lux probes the allures and pitfalls of modern celebrity with intelligence, visual style, and an assured Natalie Portman performance.

      Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review 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." May 6, 2019 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) It's episodic by design. Even so, the plot is prone to unnerving lurches, like a baked and boozed Celeste struggling to walk on high heels and spaghetti legs. Rated: 3/5 May 5, 2019 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) 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. Rated: 4/5 May 3, 2019 Full Review Serena Seghedoni Loud and Clear Reviews What makes Vox Lux so unique and perhaps even provocative is that it is up to us to establish when, how and in what way exactly her insecurities took over. The most important moments of [...] the whole film - are the ones we don't get to see on the screen Nov 4, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review However superbly shot, acted, and well-intentioned its message, Vox Lux remains somewhat puzzling, if admirable for its commitment to unconventionality. Rated: 3/4 Mar 4, 2022 Full Review Taylor Baker Drink in the Movies Episode 23: Vox Lux / The Guilty / Shoplifters / The Mule / Rififi Rated: 18/100 Sep 3, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Alec B Lots of vague ideas about "culture" are raised but by the midway point it becomes clear that the movie has little to say about anything. Its just a beautifully photographed vanity project. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/08/24 Full Review Matthew P Those who rated this poorly, clearly didn't get the deeper meaning: america as a pop culture figure, the "performance" of america in light of the tragedies since 2001, how "america" is an idea being sold to the world rather than the truth of what it really is, america not holding itself accountable and tackling the tough truths of what it really means to live in here. how the performance of freedom and liberty is just as evil as the terrorism we see so fiercely fight against. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/14/23 Full Review Joe S This is a whole lot of movie with a lot of holes in its logic and through-line, including that Bronx accent Celeste seems to have acquired once Natalie Portman enters as an addled mother who is also an arena spectacle as a pop star with a serious drug problem. The people who were around young Celeste (played wonderfully by the lovely Raffey Cassidy) have oddly not aged (manager, agent) when they're around the adult Celeste played by Natalie Portman, who chews the scenery up but in the end delivers a strangely intense song and dance in concert. Flashy kaleidoscopic montages act as time-frame transitions as Celeste matures, and they actually work. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/08/22 Full Review Audience Member Started hot... then they went to Germany and it became like any other fictitious rock star film. Thankfully, it reroutes... but sadly returns to a typical fictitious rock star film. What it did was keep my attention and make me curious enough to see how it ends. And then nothing happens. And more importantly, it left me not knowing what exactly happened. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member The worst 01 hour: and 50 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The worst of Natalie Portman ever!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review hardy c Is there anything more vapid and self-indulgent than a film about the celebrity of celebrities? Mind you, I adore Natalie Portman and her performance in and of itself is outstanding, but the film itself is weak, aimless and an ode to narcissism. I tried watching a taped version and wound up zipping through most of it, so i'm not sure I can give a totally objective view, but that should tell you all you need to know.
