A documentary covering a year in the life of Lady Gaga from career-defining performances to internal struggles with her health. It provides something seen by few: an intimate and largely unfiltered look into the life of Stefani Germanotta a.k.a pop superstar, Lady Gaga. It’s a surreal, almost ordinary look into all aspects of her life. There’s behind the scenes segments on the creation of the Joanne album, family christenings, even scenes of her writhing around from the unrelenting pain of her fibromyalgia. Every other scene artily films Gaga with a joint and there’s more than a few headline-grabbing moments but overall, it feels honest and true to herself as an artist. It’s unafraid to show every inch of her life no matter how deprecating that might be to her. As an artist who has explored the ideas of fame and kept her private life exclusively to a small group, it’s an almost bizarre move on her behalf. Regardless, it’s incredibly brave and rarely feels inauthentic. It’s a pop-film that feels more up there with Lemonade and Truth or Dare as opposed to the inauthentic Katy Perry and Bieber outputs of recent years.
It’s an inspiring and emotional film but most importantly, it’s authentic and that’s all that really matters with this kind of film. If you’re into Lady Gaga, you’ll love this. If you’re not so much, you could still very well enjoy it and I fully recommend that you do.
