miss americana review

(There’s brief footage of her reacting to not getting any Grammy nominations for Reputation, and it’s a striking moment.) Please enter your email address and we will email you a new password.

The Kanye Moment is revisited; ridiculously cute cats are petted. She talks about how reticent she was to do it based on the experience of the Dixie Chicks, who were famously ostracized by country fans when they took a swipe at President George W. Bush after the launch of the Iraq War. The Netflix documentary Miss Americana tries to make it all a little clearer. That’s why “Miss Americana” is something of a paradox. The world of politics is merely mortal. Then we cut to 2018, when she’s lolling on her couch, waiting for her manager to call the morning the Grammy nominations are announced. Netflix described the documentary as being about “a woman harnessing the full power of her voice”, and despite all the cute home footage of Swift eating dinner with her best friend or figuring out songs, that’s really the heart of it. Using a mixture of home videos, news clippings and fresh material, it tells the story of her rise to fame and, in particular, the last few years of Swift’s life. Bravo. By creating an account, you agree to the Privacy Policy Considering Taylor Swift’s first album was released 14 years ago and she’s built a career writing seven album’s worth of songs about her life, she’s still a bit of an enigma. Will she ever get over it? Entertainment Weekly may receive compensation for some links to products and services on this website. She can show a witty, loose side in candid footage, whether taken in-studio or at home. We see her as she greets weeping fans in Tokyo, and in the studio with the producer Joel Little, where she noodles away at the piano and nails down the hook of a song like “ME!”. No matter how good you are, if you don’t like yourself then it’ll never be enough. That’s what makes her a star. It shows how hard she works to achieve this – at one point, producer Joel Little tells her that she looks like she needs a break and she immediately says, “I’m fine”, and wants to keep going. Yet she has her demons and doubts (not to mention her public spats), and they lend “Miss Americana” its most compelling dimensions.

Yet in the movie’s last act, she’s liberated by the declaration of her political sympathies. Miss Americana proves that Taylor Swift has only just started her revolution. 'Miss Americana' offers a compelling and compassionate portrait of an extraordinarily talented woman who has grown up and remained remarkably unspoiled under the harshest possible spotlights. Suddenly, she was caught in a media “feud” she never asked for. She only really started speaking about politics in 2018, and Miss Americana explains why: country singers are trained not to talk about politics.
