Vox Lux ★★★★

A very ambitious film that tackles themes of pop stardom, the effects of tradegy, and the normalization of gun violence that’s brought together by an absolutely committed performance by Natalie Portman. While it’s admittedly messy at times trying to tackle so many tough themes, the ambition and Portman’s performance keep you invested. 

The final live performance is much much better than the Live Aid sequence in Bohemian Rhapsody. Those Sia songs also slap.
