Vox Lux ★★★

things this movie did well:
- the first scene 
- ellie and celeste’s relationship pre fame
- having celeste’s trauma shape her future/stardom
- natalie portman’s accent (i swear young celeste did not even have an accent this exaggerated? but then grown celeste did? confusion)

things not very well done:
- the difference of character between young celeste and grown celeste
- her daughters role felt like it meant to have a bigger impact but fell through 
- the beach attack and her thoughts on it felt like it also should’ve had a bigger impact

overall, i think it could’ve been a really good look into stardom and trauma that shapes celebrities and artists but it didn’t know how to do it all at once. also Idk if the music was good or bad.
