On the 53rd episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell joins me again for Vox Lux, Brady Corbet’s polarizing look at the life of a pop star (played as a young girl by Raffey Cassidy and as an adult by Natalie Portman) whose life and career is marred by tragedy. A difficult movie, but a fascinating one, Josh and I fall on totally different ends of the spectrum of opinions on the film which makes for a great conversation. Puzzle pieces include A Star Is Born, We Need To Talk About Kevin, mother! and Dogville.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Vox Lux (and any other movies we discussed)!
This episode will be followed up later this week with a second conversation about the movie! So stay tuned for more Vox Lux.
