PINURI ng film critics ang performance ni Lady Gaga sa pinagbibidahan nitong pelikula na A Star Is Born.
Ayon pa sa review ng New York Post, isang Oscar-worthy performance ang pinakita ni Lady Gaga bilang si Ally sa impressive directorial debut ni Bradley Cooper.
Inamin ni Copper na may mga pumipigil sa kanya na gawin ang remake ng A Star Is Born dahil hindi raw niya ito forte.
Pero ginawa pa rin niya dahil na-challenge siya sa mga nagduda sa kanyang kakayanan maging isang film director.
Heto ang naging review sa A Star Is Born: “Taking on the classic part of a talented unknown who rises to music superstardom — the iconic role that Janet Gaynor, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand played before her — Gaga proves her acting chops by trading in flash for humanity.
“You won’t believe she’s the same person who once sang the lyric “I wanna take a ride on your disco stick.” And you will be downright shocked that this electrifying film is the third remake of A Star Is Born.
“The stripped-down, makeup-free Gaga has chemistry with the equally unrecognizable Cooper.
“The actor is perfectly charming, and tortured, as Jackson — the affable sort of musician who could always use a shower.
“Jackson struggles as Ally ascends, and the disintegration of their once-innocent relationship is devastating to watch. Bring the tissues.
“Cooper’s voice is strong, too, and you believe that a few million people might actually buy this guy’s CD.
“He and Gaga sing many original numbers written for the film. They range from soothing barstool ballads to clubby pop tunes, but are united by their genuine feel. They don’t sound like movie music.
“It’s that feeling of exhilaration that makes “A Star Is Born” the best film of the year so far.”
