The more I learn about this show the more god-awful it sounds
Neither the publicity material, nor anyone involved in the show, has stated that this is a miniseries. It's usually made explicit from the start if that is the intention.
The Idol shows glimmers of potential when it stops trying so hard to be shocking. There’s a strenuousness to the sex scenes between Depp and Tesfaye that kills any sense of eroticism. It’s a relief when the show moves away from them and focuses on Joceyln’s struggle to stage a comeback. The death of her mother has left Jocelyn vulnerable and unmoored. Her unpredictable moods cause her management team to stay on edge, but they have also left Jocelyn without a sense of herself. When we see the young star trying to recommit to music — through conversation with Tedros or physically taxing music video rehearsals — the show feels like it’s working toward a more interesting thesis instead of just being one long advertisement for a cursed experience.
You're entitled to your wrong opinion, Vox Lux are pop icon, etc.Also Vox Lux was not good, girls. We tried our best to claim it as iconic but it was never going to be sustainable.
There’s something so revealing about seeing Sam and his wife Ashley (who produces his work) crowding Lily Rose and Abel in every press shot. It’s very “I’m a star!”
I always found Levinson's work completely puerile and sensationalistic so I'm not surprised this is a mess.
