Brady Corbet seems particularly interested in twisted coming of age stories. His directorial debut, The Childhood of a Leader, focuses on an angry and vicious little boy before jumping a few years ahead for a shocking reveal. Corbet’s follow up, Vox Lux, adopts the same approach to explore — or rather to directly state as fact — the long term consequences of brutal violence in today’s media-obsessed world.
