VOX LUX begins in 1999 when teenage sisters Celeste (Raffey Cassidy) and Eleanor (Stacy Martin) survive a seismic, violent tragedy. The sisters compose and perform a song about their experience, making something lovely and cathartic out of catastrophe — while also catapulting Celeste to stardom. By 2017, the now 31-year-old Celeste (Natalie Portman) is mother to a teenage daughter of her own and struggling to navigate a career fraught with scandals when another act of terrifying violence demands her attention.

Assassination Nation is the story of how the internet brings a witch hunt back to Salem. It is brutally unsubtle and thrown together with a complete lack of nuance but is actually pretty effective at saying what it needs to say.
Director Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night) seems to have made it her mission in life to reassess genre movies. Her first took a fresh look at vampires and her second, The Bad Batch, involves cannibals.
Given the review for A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, I can’t help but think that The Bad Batch will be a unique experience- and the trailer confirms it.
