A Star is, indeed, Born

It has now been almost 24 hours since I sat down in the cinema to watch Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, A Star is Born, which marks the fourth remake of this classic Hollywood love story.   Since the moment the credits began to roll, with incessant tears running down my face, I have listened to the song ‘Shallow’ from the film’s soundtrack roughly 152 times.  A veritable masterpiece, both visually and vocally, Cooper and Lady Gaga have created a cinematic joy which you simply cannot miss.
