For me personally it was too boring, even though it started out really intriguing and I get the idea of the movie, to show pop star's life from their side kinda and what they go trough and some extra stuffs to it, for me that was too boring, mainly because - not that much into these kind of movies and for me it got boring too often so I eventually just skipped through it (I did watch more than half of it).

I think that people will for sure like it if they like Sia's music, or are interested in lifes of popstars and what not or like the actors playing it (acting is quite good in this anyway). But take that away and I think this for average viewer is not really that exciting. For me this was kind of movie I ended up watchin half way through and thinkin - will this be another of the movies I watch whole movie and think why didn't I switch it off earlier - so eventually I did skip through it and yeah, for me I felt good that I did not watch the latter part fully.

Having said all that, this movie in my view is for certain type of people and I get that some enjoy it - to each their own. But for me this is a pass (giving it 3, because the idea overall to me felt good at beginning of the movie and like it did have good acting and interesting beginning kinda)

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This snooze fest has no idea what it is or why it should exist. But it is worth sitting through it to watch Natalie Portman humiliate herself as a pop singer in the last big scene. It's hilarious. She is about as bad as bad can get. This has "made for TV" all over it. Expand

Bomb. Who gave the green light? Jude Law, Portman and nothing come alive. The lighting must have been done by Stevie Wonders less sighted brother. The first half of the film is so dull you could do an errand at Walmart and be moreBomb. Who gave the green light? Jude Law, Portman and nothing come alive. The lighting must have been done by Stevie Wonders less sighted brother. The first half of the film is so dull you could do an errand at Walmart and be more entertained. The second half has Portman as a very unlikable character emoting nonstop but to what end? We don't know. Clean under your refrigerator. Call an old friend. Take a nap. Just Don't go see this movie.

Boring and no impressive at all. Overrated, even the soundtrack isn't good.

(Mauro Lanari)
In the period between the US school massacres and September 11, "a portrait of the 21st century" symbolized by the life of a Faustian popstar ("One for the money. Two for the show. Three to make ready. And four to go"), reincarnation of Nina from "Black Swan". Corbet's ambition is boundless, the result detestable: histrionics and arrogance to build an apologue on the faults of lightheartedness, an allegory that is all too obvious and discovered on the intrinsic guilt of what looks away ("I don't want people to think" - Celeste declaims - "I just want them to feel good"), denunciation of a world whose superficiality is largely replicated.
