Vox Lux
First screened in October 2018
Director: Brady Corbet. Cast: Raffey Cassidy, Natalie Portman, Stacy Martin, Jude Law, Jennifer Ehle, Matt Servitto, Maria Dizzia, Christopher Abbott, voice of Willem Dafoe. Screenplay: Brady Corbet.

Twitter Capsule: Artpop². Unafraid. Tries to think historically about an era that repudiates history—without making pop something it's not.

VOR:   A few islands of complacency or under-conception, but mostly impresses with its will toward structural, tonal, and narrative audacity. Sui generis.
