An insight into the inner workings of a complete disaster.
24 January 2019 | by ShYnBrCkSee all my reviews

"Fyre" does an excellent job of showing how this "festival" grew from infancy to a complete utter disaster. It incorporates first hand accounts of events that transpired, and delves into the scope of how messed up this whole thing was.

It starts with the facade being fabricated through social media influencers and the logical progression that the "clout" those people had to manufacture hype for something. This definitely is somewhat of a social commentary on the current state of social media, and the actual power of it. I think they said something like 400 influencers posted about this festival to create hype, and it succeeded. But the smoke and mirrors will only get you so far, and the collapse of the entire endeavor is fulfilling to watch, yet sad to the people it ruined in its wake (The Bahamians, for example, that grinded without pay).

The pacing was great, the build up was phenomenal, and the collapse was inevitable. Overall this is a good symposium of how ideas in this day in age aren't enough, and deception can't fix anything.

This one is great for learning about the inner part of Fyre, where Hulu delves more into the 3rd party perspective/social media influence.
