    ★★★★½

    as a psych major, we learn about mental illness all the time. we get to dissect what exactly it can do to a person and how helpless one can feel. it baffles me how this still isn’t normalized in society and those suffering from it may even be labeled as “weird” or “weak”. this movie is broken into 2 parts with the two sisters justine and claire. each part tells their depression which used a lot of symbolism on how…

    i don’t really get the hype. the first half was very entertaining and the first time they performed shallow was probably the best scene of the movie. it slowed down in the 2nd half dragging issues of fame, jealousy and drugs that’s been told in thousand of other movies, and in better ways. bradley cooper’s character had no development whatsoever and the ending was predictable. lady gaga slightly surprised me but she definetely did not deserve the oscar nomination. this was average at best but had some good music and cinematography.
