Dex Flix's Film Review "A STAR IS BORN" 2018

A remake of the original 1937 film of the same. This one features and directed by Bradley Cooper as "Jackson Maine" who is a hard drinking musician who goes on tour and falls in love with "Alley" played by Lady Gaga, a a night club owner & a song writer. After coming off from one of his tours, Jackson drops into a bar where Alley is singing Drag-Queen Bar and instantly sees her potential and asks her to come on tour with him.

Things begin to look up for Alley and is soon signed by a record label who takes her career in the path only Jackson could only hope and dream of. Jackson begins to get bitter as time goes on and ends up in a self destructing spiral which affects everyone in more ways than one. 

The chemistry with Bradley and Gaga is natural on set, especially with the songs that have been chosen. Other mentions within this film is supporting cast from Dave Chapelle who play Jackson's best mate called "George". This film is emotional at times and expect for this to get nominated for several awards.

Personal Rating 8.2/10 | Critics Rating (IMDd) 8.1/10
