A Star Is Born OST

A Star is Born, and reborn, and reborn again

The more famous 1954 version starred Judy Garland and James Mason, while the original 1937 tearjerker starred Janet Gaynor and Fredric March.

Two of the most talked-about American films in Box office recently, musical romantic drama film "A Star Is Born" directed by Bradley Cooper and biographical drama film "First Man" directed by Damien Chazelle are now being screened at the Star Cineplex of Bashundhara City Shopping Mall in the capital. He plays Jackson Maine, a huge singer-songwriter whose path intersects with an unknown and overlooked talent named Ally (Lady Gaga) and the two become entangled as his star fades and hers rises. Ally's star, in contrast, is rising like a comet.

From the off it's very easy to say, this film is brilliant. "Shallow", like Adele's "Hello" or Kesha's "Praying", is the kind of flawless pop song that's engineered to draw as much emotional response from the listener as possible.

This remake of A Star Is Born is entertaining, crowd-friendly, a fairy tale-like drama with some tear jerking thrown into the mix (as in the Barbra Streisand version). Scarface, should, in fact, follow whoever the mass migrant population in the USA is, and A Star is Born is one of those romantic stories of tragedy that can be endlessly retold. Here, he gives the performance of his career. But somehow I got the sense that as an audience member I was meant to sympathize with him in moments when, actually, I don't.

The screenplay also helps - the dialogue is written in a way that slowly reveals the people, their issues, their stories and their fears.

Lady Gaga's acting debut takes her charisma as a singer forward by leaps and bounds. Gaga and Cooper sing every track, because this film is about Ally and Jackson Main. Which is what fells our tragic hero (played by Cooper), who is unable to cope with the slings and arrows of a motherless infancy, a distant paterfamilias and fandom which isn't interested in the country rockstar as a real person. The first is the 42nd Street myth, in which a humble understudy gets the chance of a lifetime, goes out there a youngster, and comes back a star. It's a pure performance, and one that cements why he's a mega-star and why he has been given this project to do with as he pleases. In the annals of surprising debuts, this one ranks with Diana Ross turning herself into Billie Holiday in 1972's Lady Sings the Blues and Bette Midler becoming Janis Joplin (in all but name) in The Rose in 1979.


Next to him is the opposite.

The latest A Star Is Born isn't a bad film - it's pleasant, which is not really a compliment, and it has good singing along with Bradley Cooper's blue eyes and comfortably predictable direction. Enchanted by her voice, they bond for hours over their insecurities before he drops her off at home and infamously tells her, "I just want to take another look at you". You fall for her as Ally, just as Jackson does.

Afterward, Jackson essentially stalks Ally into submission. Elliott has always been a solid southern performer but here he's quietly intense, delivery some of his best scenes with no dialogue.

On the other side of things, this movie is long at 135 minutes, causing the movie to be fairly slow in some scenes and rush through others. Lukas Nelson, son of Willie, and Gaga deliver songs of emotional truth that continue to further the story of the film. And it's not just because the two actors are perfectly in tune with each other, song for song, fleeting love-filled look for fleeting love-filled look.
