54th Chicago International Film Festival Review – Vox Lux (2018)

Vox Lux, 2018.

Written and Directed by Brady Corbet.

Starring Natalie Portman, Raffey Cassidy, Jude Law, Stacy Martin, Jennifer Ehle, Willem Dafoe, Natasha Romanova, Christopher Abbott, Erik King, Matt Servitto, and Maria Dizzia.

Synopsis:

An unusual set of circumstances brings unexpected success to a pop star.

Brady Corbet’s Vox Lux is a curious misfire; there’s never a moment in the movie where the script and direction don’t feel as if they are ready to break out and finally make some biting satire about the connecting threads that exist between national tragedy, soulless popstar worldwide icons, and mass shooting acts of terrorism that unfortunately still happen across America. Even more promising is Natalie Portman at the center of it all, impressing with vocals and a thick New York accent, coupled with a rip-roaring, self-centered, absorbed personality that sees the cynical singer tearing into everyone from her family to her

Natalie Portman Rocks the Stage in Second Official Trailer for 'Vox Lux'

"Tonight... we're going to bring it back to where it all began!" Neon has debuted a second full-length trailer for Vox Lux, the highly provocative, brilliant film by American actor-turned-filmmaker Brady Corbet (his second film after The Childhood of a Leader). This premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals this year to some divisive reactions, with plenty of effusive praise. Vox Lux stars Raffey Cassidy and Natalie Portman (both) as a popstar named Celeste, profiling her rise to fame and fortune and glory. It spans 18 years, showing us her origin story and what she has become later in life. It's essentially the anti-a Star is Born movie, and it's incredibly bold in its message about how cyclical and connected everything (good & bad) in this world is. The cast includes Jude Law, Jennifer Ehle, Stacy Martin, Matt Servitto, Fred Hechinger, and Allison Winn. I saw this in Venice and loved

Full Trailer for Brady Corbet's Film 'Vox Lox' Starring Natalie Portman

"It's a weird world we live in... And the way I've chosen to live my life goes against some people's views on things." Neon has released the full-length official trailer for Vox Lux, the highly provocative, brilliant new film by American actor-turned-filmmaker Brady Corbet (his second film after The Childhood of a Leader previously). This premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals this year to some divisive reactions. Vox Lux stars Raffey Cassidy and Natalie Portman (both) as a popstar named Celeste, profiling her rise to fame and fortune and glory. It spans 18 years, showing us her origin story and what she has become later in life. It's essentially the anti-a Star is Born movie, and it's seriously bold in its poignant message about how cyclical and connected everything in this world is. Popstars aren't always good for modern society. The cast includes Jude Law, Jennifer Ehle, Stacy Martin,

First Teaser for Brady Corbet's Film 'Vox Lux' Starring Natalie Portman

"A twenty-first century portrait." Vanity Fair has released the first brief teaser trailer for a new film titled Vox Lux, the second feature made by actor Brady Corbet (who also directed The Childhood of a Leader). This is premiering at the Venice Film Festival starting this week, and it will also play at the Toronto Film Festival. Not much is known about this yet, but it stars Natalie Portman as a mega-famous popstar named Celeste. The short description explains that "an unusual set of circumstances brings unexpected success to a pop star." And supposedly the film spans 18 years, showing many major moments through her eyes. The cast includes Jude Law, Jennifer Ehle, Raffey Cassidy, Stacy Martin, Matt Servitto, Fred Hechinger, and Allison Winn. There is not much to this teaser, just her walking out on stage, but I am curious to see more - I've got a good feeling. And

Banshee Season 4 Episode 7 Review – ‘Truths Other Than The Ones You Tell Yourself’

Kris Wall reviews the seventh episode of Banshee season 4…

We’re at the penultimate episode of this final season now and this week really felt like the creators had realised they were spinning too many plates so close to the end, so doubled down on the urgency to tie up loose ends to set up the inevitable showdowns between Lucas Vs Proctor and Kurt Vs Calvin next week. In all honest it was a bit of a messy episode, despite looking really cool, the urgency to start wrapping things up fast worked against the show and meant that some of the story building reached anti-climactic conclusions, though we did get a pretty cool scene between Lucas and Brock, but more on that later.

First up, I was seriously disappointed to see Deputy Cruz getting taken out by Burton so unceremoniously in the first 20 seconds of this episode. While it sort

Tonight's 'Banshee' had more serial killing — and one of its best scenes ever

Tonight's 'Banshee' had more serial killing — and one of its best scenes ever
A review of the penultimate Banshee — and thoughts on recent episodes of the series — coming up just as soon as my boss catches me saying something inappropriate in the workplace... "Eventually, the lie took over. I believed it. I was the sheriff. I was a cop, and I liked it. I fuckin' loved it... Somehow, it just felt right." -Hood You may recall at the start of the season, I worried that the serial killer storyline was the one thriller cliche that even this show couldn't breathe new life into. If anything, my frustration with the arc only grew over time, as it just kept moving through the same beats every one of these stories has going back at least to Silence of the Lambs — up to and including the moment where it seems like the heroes are about to move in on the killer, only they're going through another door in another place entirely.

Banshee Season 4 Episode 2 Review – ‘The Burden of Beauty’

Kris Wall reviews the second episode of Banshee season 4…

Full Spoilers for The Burden of Beauty ahead…

If there’s one thing that Banshee has become exceptionally good at, it’s defying viewer expectations. Just when you think you have this show figured out, it suddenly (and often violently) pulls the rug out from under you as it streaks off in a completely different, but no less thrilling, direction entirely. Banshee does not play by your rules, Banshee doesn’t really care for your rules either.

The Burden of Beauty opened on another flashback as Rebecca staggered into hospital, beaten and bloody before collapsing to the floor. Definitely a startling sight to grip attention right from the off, and something that has eased my concerns about the two year time jump that I had in last weeks episode, as it’s now clear the writers are going to be filling

Banshee Season 4 Episode 1 Review – ‘Something Out of the Bible’

Kris Wall reviews the first episode of Banshee season 4…

Warning : Full spoilers to follow.

I love Banshee, I just had to get that out there immediately !

As Banshee begins its fourth and final season, lets recap the events of season three that have lead up to now. The season opened with Lucas Hood leading deputies Brock and Siobhan on a quest of violent revenge to avenge the murder of Deputy Yawners by white supremacists at the climax of season two, an act that Frank Castle would have applauded, but immediately put him even more at odds with a concerned Brock than he ever was before. Meanwhile Carrie’s criminal past came to light and completely exiled her from her husband, Gordon, and her children, Deva and Max. The hulking warchief, Chayton Littlestone, and the Redbones returned, laying waste to the Banshee P.D in retaliation for the death of his brother,

The first 'Sopranos' episode to address the show's critics, before they even saw it

The first 'Sopranos' episode to address the show's critics, before they even saw it
Welcome to the eighth installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the eighth episode, “The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti," coming up just as soon as I devote my energies to the dignity of Connie Francis... "Where's my arc?" -Christopher And here we come to the meta — before it was even 100% meta. "The Sopranos" quickly became a hit for HBO
