I really loved this film. I thought it started off very moving, but quickly went on to show all the ways fame and success can lead to a loss of innocence in very real and tangible ways. I also love the jarringly autotunned songs, rediculous outfits, frank narrator, manic behavior and the mad erratic home movie-esque sequences in this film, which all made me feel a sense of dread for the character. A pop star IS taken away from their family, put on tour, put in front of a camera and made to chime out auto tuned hit after hit. I love that this film went to show, quite clearly, the pressure and reality of fame. Despite singing about love, lots of friends, sex and hope, Celeste is a 31 year old with no friends, no boyfriend, and a drug and alcohol problem. She's constantly told where to go, who to talk to, and what to say, and is bombarded with difficult to answer questions and attention from the public when she just wants to be alone. I feel this rings true has, realistically, how could a pop star live any other way? Where is the time for friends and love? This movie had a lot to say as it points out all the ways fame can be a trap for the individual, and isn't necessarily â~the ideal life'. Despite dragging on at times, this movie had an awful lot to say; and I'm here for it.
