Three years after triumphing at the Venice Film Festival with The Childhood of a Leader – which won two awards as it passed through the Orizzonte section Green Book the young American filmmaker Brady Corbet returns to the Mostra with Vox Lux, a film that could have been titled The childhood of a pop leader. As he already did in his debut, where he studied the rise of fascism in the interwar period in twentieth century Europe, Corbet observes in Vox Lux the growth of a character on which the tensions and contradictions of his time converge, in this case the dawn of a dark XXI century.
After surviving an attack that refers directly to the 1999 Columbine Institute killings, the young Celeste (Raffey Cassidy) becomes a pop phenomenon when a song composed in the hospital, while recovering from her wounds, becomes a hymn of national reconciliation in times of mourning. Soon, the success will take Celeste to the most commercial side of the entertainment industry, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and in 2017, already played by a theatrical Natalie Portman, the viewer will discover her turned into a black hole of cynicism. “My songs are getting worse, but each time they sell more,” the protagonist arrogantly declares, devoured by immaturity and narcissism. Delivered to the apology of the immediate – “everyone wants something new and empty,” defends the star, “it is not difficult to identify this diva of banality as a spokeswoman for the amnesic and ignorant America dreamed by Trump.
Vox Lux consecrates Corbet as a creator of turbulent atmospheres Robin Hood and grandiloquent filmic speeches. Using a gravity and a structure by chapters that refers to several titles of Lars von Trier (from Dogvile to Antichrist), and combining stylistic resources from various works of Stanley Kubrick -from whom he inherits his satirical and cynical spirit-, Mary Poppins Returns Corbet decorates his portrait of the Millenial universe with a resounding Scott Walker soundtrack, songs composed by Sia and a distanced narration off Willem Dafoe, which gives the film a tone of macabre fable.Searching Term : Vox Lux Full Watch Vox Lux Movie Streaming Online 2018, Watch Vox Lux Movie Streaming HD 1080p, Free Vox Lux Movie Streaming Online, Download Vox Lux Full Movie Streaming Online in HD-720p Video Quality , Where to Download Vox Lux Full Movie ?, Vox Lux Movie Include All Subtitles 2018.
