Poorly made with a clear intention to serve a victim narrative for Billie.
1 October 2020 | by giorgiozacharoSee all my reviews

What is the deal with all these biographies trying to portray everyone as a saint? I wish this was a film focusing on her songs and what made her great instead of being a second rate gossip TV show about her personal life. Also what is the reason for putting a second storyline of her fan/biographer? The name of the documentary is Billie for a reason.
