The Press Reviews

  • Corbet's high-caliber melodrama combines food for thought with sense-blitzing spectacle. Full Review

  • All-pervasive millennial unease – the sense the world no longer works as it used to, or should – is Vox Lux’s plangent root-position chord, and the film offers no easy cure... Full Review
