Damn, that Bradley Cooper is one talented guy!
Such confidence in direction. Full of close-ups that initial grate yet turn quickly into compelling, gut and heart wrenching moments and draw you so deeply into the performances. The way he chooses to stage the concert footage in particular is so kinetic.
It doesn't hurt that he has the songs to go with it too. I could see the soundtrack turning into a classic. There's gonna be Oscars here for sure.
