Gaga: Five Foot Two
    2017-September-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

In the Netflix original documentary “Gaga: Five Foot Two,” Lady Gaga offers a vulnerable look of her life during one of the most pivotal* periods in her career yet. Directed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Chris Moukarbel, the film gives viewers unfiltered*, behind-the-scenes access as Gaga spends time with close friends and family members, records and releases her 2016 album “Joanne” and deals with personal struggles.

Moukarbel’s compelling portrait captures Lady Gaga’s life over a eight-month period.

On top of professional triumphs, viewers will see her cope with intense emotional and physical pain. Other moments reflect more ordinary aspects of her life, whether it’s attending a family christening*, visiting her grandmother or cooking and playing with her dogs at home. The film may help viewers understand how all of these experiences contribute to Gaga’s art — and how, in just a few years, the 5-foot-2 performer has become such a relatable and beloved figure worldwide.

The film doesn’t have a lot of musical numbers. It is all about Gaga growing up, taking a decisive turn in her pop journey, exploring a new direction as she tries, at the age of 30, to calm herself in the thrashing waters of fame.

In the film, Gaga radiates a potent energy — she’s intensely funny and aware, and so unabashedly* focused on herself that, like Madonna back in the day, that’s simply who she is and who we want her to be. Speaking of Madonna, Gaga disses her in the movie in a not-quite-scandalous way, though it’s really payback for negative comments Madonna made about her.

In “Five Foot Two” Gaga is fully and casually exposed, and what we see is a playful but vibrantly intense woman in big glasses and tied-back platinum-blonde hair who’s comfortable with her family, who reveres* the creative process and knows how to treat herself. She’s got a couple of nice big dogs, and her Malibu mansion is tasteful.

“Five Foot Two” is certainly a documentary-as-controlled-exposure-as-press-release, but just because Lady Gaga is the rock star of rock stars doesn’t mean that her candor* isn’t real.(SD-Agencies)
