Goofs

Jack doesn't want to go home, so searches for a bar, and finds the drag bar. But when he takes Ally for a drink, he goes to the cop bar and the cop says "you come here every night" so why didn't Jack just go there from the beginning? (Obviously he wouldn't have met Ally but still - plot hole ?) See more »

Quotes

George 'Noodles' Stone: You know, it's like, I don't know, you float out, float out at sea, and then one day you find a port, say, 'I'm going to stay here a few days'. A few days becomes a few years. And then you forgot where you were going in the first place. And then you realize you don't really give a shit about where you was going because you like where you're at.

Is it a good film? Yes. Oscar material? No.
5 October 2018 | by superdupersentinelSee all my reviews

Let me start by saying that the performances are solid. Not mind blowing but solid. For her first film, Lady Gaga did very well but I can't say she blew my mind...but hey it's her first film and I like her, so good for her. That being said, the film seems to be getting WAY overblown by people. The first act is really great and the chemistry between Gaga and Cooper is phenomenal but after that it sort of devolves into a melodrama. The character development of Cooper's character is lacking. He is an alcoholic and we certainly see him drunk many times but I didn't see enough struggle to justify his character arc not was Cooper's performance powerful enough to convey the devastating agony of addiction. The film then goes through a few cliches as we see Gaga's character ascend to fame but again, we also don't see enough struggle from her character either. In all, the character conflicts are addressed but the film never fully dives into them in the way it certainly could have. I loved the first song of the film but the rest of the music was surprisingly bland and didn't captivate me at all. Lady Gaga obviously has an incredible voice and Cooper held his own surprisingly. Overall it was a good film, not great, just good.
