THE WORLD'S A LITTLE BLURRY
Billie Eilish: The World's A Little Blurry showcases the rise of Eilish from her shocking rush to fame with "Ocean Eyes" when she was 13 years old to her ultimate stress while creating an entire album with her producer/brother Finneas while simultaneously going on tour.
The documentary sits at 2 hours and 20 minutes, and while I personally was intrigued the entire time because I'm a relatively big fan of her music and unfamiliar with her lifestyle, people who don’t connect to her music will be seriously left out from this young woman's journey to stardom.
This documentary honestly did not need to be as long as it is. There's quite a bit of "fun" and "dramatic" filler to get more of the personality out of Eilish, such as her fandom to Justin Bieber and her early relationship with a guy named Q.
It's the relationship that Billie holds with her collaborator Finneas and her parents throughout the film that makes it a warm experience filled with rages of self doubt. This film shows the unfiltered reality of songwriting and having to go up on stage to give it your absolute all, leading to some serious strain mentally and physically.
It's a documentary that fans will surely appreciate, displaying her relentless attitude to make sure that fans (as she calls them "a piece of me") end with a friendly encounter. It also shows that she can have her off days, and that's okay too. Dealing with a condition like Tourettes can be an unimaginable strain on everything you're wanting to pursue, but Billie pushes through it, only showing signs of the condition when she's off stage and consumed by thoughts.
Going in blind is the wrong way to go about The World's A Little Blurry. If people believe this is just a concert film then they will be greatly disappointed by the end result. However, those looking for a fascinating view into the life of Eilish and the stress of fame that consumes her at unforseen times will find something satisfying within. Her unmistakable musical talent that led to her unbelievable Grammy wins is on full display here.
