Vox Lux ★★★★½

let me preface this by saying that i totally understand why this is divisive and why some people are hating it but ooh baby i loved it!!! it's so sick and dark and weird and unique and haunting and intoxicating, brady corbet really said fuck your feelings huh!! i love how the editing and the camera work and other elements like the flash photography and celeste's performance are jarring and uncomfortable, mirroring how the story makes us feel and how the characters are feeling.

i'm not smart enough to break this down but i had a blast from start to finish! this is an insane, twisted, uninhibited knockout!!! give portman the oscar!
