Vox Lux ★★★★½

The title Vox Lux means “voice of light” in Latin, but it’s the film’s subhead, A 21st Century Portrait, that holds the real significance and offers the greatest insight into what this movie is truly about. To describe this as a tale about the rise and struggles of a pop star, while perhaps technically accurate, would be doing it an injustice. The film is most concerned with capturing what it means to live in this era and the lingering effects of growing up in a generation shaped in equal parts by violence, consumerism and celebrity culture.

P.S. Has without a doubt the best score of the year imo and Your Body Talks is such a bop. Robyn is shaking.
