'Vox Lux' | Film Review

'Vox Lux' | Film Review

Warning: spoilers ahead.

The one piece of tangible film criticism we'll give 'Vox Lux' is that the artistic approach to the sound design is supremely disagreeable, which is a cardinal sin considering the plot is based on the life of a traumatized pop star.

Beyond that, the opening scene is so unexpectedly jarring that it casts a pall over the entirety of the film.  Full stop. 

At first, we planned on holding 30-year old writer/director Brady Corbet accountable for putting such a shocking and downright questionable creative decision on screen.  However, perhaps the true crime here isn't that Corbet showed the sickening reality of a school shooting to the masses of this country, but rather that the masses of this country haven't yet moved heaven and earth to ensure that something as grotesque as a school shooting only exists in the realm of fiction.

No rating.
