Movie Review – Vox Lux

Director: Brady Corbet Starring: Raffey Cassidy, Stacy Martin, Natalie Portman Year: 2018 Not only is Vox Lux one of the weakest films of the 2018 slate, but it also forced me to sit through a Katy Perry concert at the end, and for that I will never forgive it.  This film combines the lasting trauma
