This 4th remake of the classic is about a young star on the rise (Lady Gaga), while her lover (Bradley Cooper) is failing. More importantly, their love story is a beautiful combination of perfect chemistry and wonderful performances. Gaga is astounding with charisma and subtlety that’s continually captivating. Of course, her singing (done live) is spectacular (the songs are strong too). This is probably Cooper’s best performance, he lays out his character with magnetism and raw emotion. Being an accomplished actor pays off when it came to Cooper directing the film. Not only has he elicited poignant moments from every member of the cast (with lots of lingering closeups), he’s skillfully created an appealing narrative (the strong script helps). My only complaint is that the ending, although sad, didn’t move me. Otherwise, this film features 2 wonderfully-compelling performances in a truly touching love story.

  2. Just saw it. Took me awhile to get into it. Improbable opening i think. But a great flick.
