Elevates the concert film
19 April 2019 | by moviediveSee all my reviews

It's a kinetic cut of Beyoncé's Coachella performance intercut with a glimpse of her creative process, her hard-work and intention, and her work-life balance.

We also get short interludes with the performers who played and danced alongside her in the show.

Do I wish we could've gotten more interviews with her creative team, maybe hear about what they put into the show? Sure.

Am I mad about what we did get with Homecoming? Absolutely not.

Other artists put out concert videos, but Beyonce truly put out a film. She took something that most of us experienced through static livestream and cellphone videos and social media reactions and she made it come alive again like we were right there with her.

It's a snapshot, a moment in time adorned with her hopes and influences. It's a gorgeous record of a masterful production.
