My last film of the festival. Boo! Hurrah! Vox Lux follows the career of a troubled pop star, from her dramatic debut. Natalie Portman is Celeste, and her co-star Raffey Cassidy plays a younger Celeste, and later, Celeste’s daughter Albertine. A film about innocence lost, all in the search and push for an “angle”. Songs are by Sia, and the soundtrack is by Scott Walker. I’d’ve liked Celeste to go down the Scott Walker route with some meat punching, but hey, you can’t have everything.
Glasgow film festival over and out. Til next year.
