    There's a lot going on here, but I think it's fair to say that this is the "rise of a music star, with complex views on poptimism" narrative that 2018 really needed. We get the tangled intersection of inspiration and exploitation, the role of pure escapist spectacle in a world gone mad, our love-hate relationship with our pop culture idols, and one hell of a go-for-broke Natalie Portman performance. I'd have preferred more meat on the bones of the relationship…

    That was an entertaining and informative movie!

    But that's all I really have to say. I'm glad I saw it. It was good.
    [The format requires you to say more.]
    I won't. What if I cause harm to my #brand by just blathering when I've said all I needed to say?
