The Netflix original film is a hit for all Beyoncé, but defiantly falls short for everyone else
In this Netflix original film, ‘Homecoming’ made by Beyoncé surrounding her successful concert in Coachella, including footage from her concert performance. Entwined with this particular concert performance, audiences can see footage of her rehearsals and other behind-the-scenes footage of her family and home life. On top of all of this, there is particular emphasis on her life as well as various cultures movements that she’s been involved with or feel strongly about.
Unfortunately, I am not a Beyoncé fan myself, but I do like some of her music and enjoyed the concert footage. It would defiantly be a good watch for all Beyoncé fans. Audiences can finally take an inside look into the popular pop star’s life, while watching one of her biggest concerts of last year. Beyoncé fans are able to watch the inspirational journey of this popstar’s life in the spotlight and how she comes to juggle the pressures of her family life. An extra layer is cast upon the film as this Netflix original film when it features important, vital cultures movements in her past, which has shaped the popstar’s life.
My reaction to this film is varied, being a media student, it’s fascinating with learning about Beyoncé’s popstar life and the intensity of her rehearsals she undergoes before every performance, with traits of her personality showing through at every point. Watching this firm, it was clear Beyoncé has devotion to her family, her popstar life and her loyal fan base and how she balances everything.
However, I am not a Beyoncé fan myself and though I enjoyed it in places, aspects of the Netflix original film was dry and inconsequential to me. I will not be watching it again.
