i was asked why have i not shared my review of A Star Is Born. i had wanted to but, truth be told, it was difficult to pen down my thoughts at first. the thing is, the films narrative i.e. the tragic love story of Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) and Ally (Lady Gaga) just hits too close to home suffice to say that Jackson somewhat reminds me of the brilliant yet self-destructive guy whom i was once in a relationship with. so, as the familiar tale of a girl and her toxic partner unfolds, i shed a tear not only for Ally and Jackson anyway without a doubt, this latest remake of A Star Is Born is a commendable production. its sweet retelling of an age-old story may just tug at your heartstrings. it gives a peek into the tempestuous ups and downs of stardom; complete with fairytale romance, painful drama and substance abuse. well paced and beautifully executed, Coopers directorial debut is nothing short of powerful the strong performance by a great cast including veteran Sam Elliot makes it one of the must-watch films this year. what i like most about it is the perfect on-screen chemistry between Cooper and Gaga Cooper shines as the rockstar struggling with his alcohol and drug addiction, not to mention his plummeting career. more than Cooper, though, Gaga is the ultimate supernova on the silver screen. an icon in her own right, the singer demonstrates that her acting chops are to be reckoned with too. with her effortlessly nuanced portrayal of the talented girl on the rise, and backed by her impressive vocal range, Gaga really owns this piece the film does not really come across like a musical that it is. the songs are seamlessly weaved in that everything just flows naturally. look deeper and you will notice how Cooper the director distinguishes between the two worlds of Jacksons country rock and Allys pop music. the soundtrack boasts several arresting numbers such as Shallow and my personal favourite the heartbreaking Ill Never Love Again (its official music video has just been released a few hours ago) which are potential classics in short, i love this poignant reincarnation of A Star Is Born. give it a try - you might too p.c.
