Bad presentation , and no subtitles for the hearing impaired is just the beginning...
Verified purchase
Don't bother with the region B blu-ray. No subtitles, crap audio and video. A perfect example of movie company ignorance towards the blu-ray buying audience. Why even bother, if you dont care anyway, dear Curzon? People buying blu-rays are after three main things:

1] Peace of mind, by owning a psychical media that can be played even if only power is available, and is immune to all the stupid things movie companies do all the time availability wise.

2) Deliver the best possible technical presentation. The best audio and video expirience, that respect the care that the movie makers have put in their work.

3) supplements and extras. Exploring the movie theme and universe

Vox Lux is a catastrophe, even before you get into the movie...

Excellent soundscore and colours. Storyline light, some verbals difficult to hear.

Loved it. Music sounds brilliant and original at that, filming very effective and colourful; and a thought provoking storyline - which unfortunately was a bit light in places. If the storyline had been beefed up a bit (between making the video and Act2), and there was less mumbling, where I really couldn't hear what was being said, I would have put 5 stars. Maybe subtitles would solve the mumbling issue.

a great looking film that doesn't quite deliver the goods.... we wanted to know more about the life events that weren't mentioned - but still an enjoyable way to spend an evening...

Don't. Just don't.
Verified purchase
After a brutal, shocking start the film becomes bland and dull. Nothing actually happens, there's no message and there's nothing to take away from it either. The addition of a narrator makes no sense, only seeming to add backstory more interesting than the film itself.

Promises more than it delivers
Verified purchase
The premise of the storyline, along with the narration at intervals during the film, led to expect more than it was able to deliver. It just left me wondering what was the point of it all.

Preorder price farce
Verified purchase
Preorder price guarantee was not upheld on this item. Not a worry now it’s released, but I spent higher than it’s lowest price before release.

Interesting misfire
Sort of a weird indie blend of Elephant and Black Swan. It opens strong with a tragic event that leads teenager Celeste into a singing career, supported by her song-writing older sister. Shot with a grubby early Cronenberg style, the first half of the film with Raffey Cassidy as Celeste and then Natalie Portman playing the same character 20 years later is interesting. But fame corrupting innocence is hardly a new theme and writer/director Brady Corbet struggles to find anything more to say past the midway point. A concert finale is well put together but doesn't actually move the story along and is more interested with Portman's (admittedly spectacular) performance.

It's a message movie with no message - at least nothing we haven't seen or heard done better before. The terrorism angle is introduced and then forgotten about. The performances are strong but even with songs written by Sia there's nothing really memorable to hold on to, no catchy songs. Maybe that's the point but Corbet tries too hard with the indie, arty sensibilities at the sacrifice of narrative. Interesting in fits and starts, then, but overall a misfire.

Portman at the top of her game.
Wonderfully unique and devilishly dark it feels almost threatening how encapsulating and attention snatching this film becomes. So brutally horrific and unfiltered, but also the perfect blend of spectacularly timed emotional elements and absorbing dramatic themes.

A final act which is so terrific and effortlessly enjoyable, a painful grin from cheek to cheek was present. Topped off with a killer soundtrack delivering pop bops one after another and one of Portman's most enthralling performances to date, there is little not to love, however, understandably divisive due to the direction style and themes addressed.

Vox Lux could simply be branded a bona fide masterpiece without anything further justification required.
