    I really enjoyed this in spite of all the negativity I had read coming into it...remembered it being a big thing when I was a kid, but not age appropriate etc...though the final bit was a tad indulgent on Streisand's part I suppose...a bit long winded and sappy (the last 20 minutes). 1 year 7 months ago

    This was an attempt to remake the earlier versions of A Star is Born, but position them in the music industry instead of Hollywood. The movie also foregrounds the male protagonist in a way that made the narrative unbalanced and unconcerned with Streisand's character.

    Narratively, this makes it a story about how a good time boy loses his spark and declines into depression and addiction with almost no push back from the people in his life. Personally, the less Streisand on screen the better.
