St. Vincent & Carrie Brownstein Attempt To Satirize Pop-Star Documentaries In The Nowhere Inn
We’re in the midst of a pop-star documentary boom. The past few years have brought an onslaught of films promising authentic glimpses into the lives of glittering pop figures: the bracing Billie Eilish documentary The World’s A Little Blurry, Taylor Swift’s carefully orchestrated Miss Americana, Beyoncé’s “Beychella” concert film Homecoming, even the Jonas Brothers jumping into the fray with Chasing Happiness. These movies give musicians — and their management — the chance to control their narratives; in return, fans get parceled-out morsels of intimacy. It’s a contract between artist and viewer, a bargain we make again and again and again.
