Storyline

The documentary pulls back the curtain to introduce the woman behind the performer, the costumes, the glitz and the glamour. Off-stage, in the studio, unplugged and at home, audiences get an unguarded glimpse at Gaga through a series of personal highs and lows and the culmination of a year's emotional journey. From struggles with relationships to health issues, from finding solace in her inner circle to conquering her insecurities, Gaga: Five Foot Two navigates the divide between life as a superstar and life as an everyday woman.

An unadulterated, pristine lens to see a superstar's private life
24 September 2017 | by aranilabelardojrSee all my reviews

After watching "Gaga: Five Foot Two" (a Netflix Original documentary), I have found new respect for Lady Gaga. It gives us a glimpse of the vulnerable, human side of the gigantic pop provocateur we all knew. How she deals with pain. With trauma. With heartaches. And climbing her way back up. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes. Even though some non- Gaga fans who do not have an ample knowledge about her struggles from the past 5 years will become somewhat emotionally unattached, this documentary is still a must-watch. Not to pity her or anything but to take a second to see that 'Joanne' deep inside her. That human inside her. A human who's surprisingly relatable. Who feels pain, who feels defeated, who feels left out like many of us. Heart-tugging. Moving. A must-watch.
