Whatever the creators of this documentary set out to achieve, they certainly achieved that rare quality of a film that can be summed up in two words: disastrously good. Come to think of it, there’s no other way you can think of this face, swallowing every close-up, this talent, so inescapable as to seem completely out of control, and this girl, glorious and tragic. 

Indeed, this felt like a message from another world. Too bad the message is lost in the fucking songs.
