“The World’s a Little Blurry” Documentary Review


Adrienne Sabatier, writer

On February 26, 2021, a documentary called,“The World’s a Little Blurry” was released on Apple TV. This documentary is about the singer Billie Eilish and her music career. 

The documentary starts off in Billie’s home where her and her brother are working on her album, “when we all fall asleep, where do we go?” They go into the process of how Billie’s music is made. Her and her brother make and record her music in her childhood house in her room. 

Next, we see Billie in the peak of her fame. The documentary shows her on tour and what she deals with behind the scenes. We see her kind of struggle dealing with this fame since it happened so quickly. People tend to forget that she is only nineteen and has problems just like everyone else. People were quick to judge her music and call it depressing. Billie saw her music as her expressing herself and wanted to have something people can either relate to or something to just comfort them. 

The documentary also reveals things about Billie that we did not know. It reveals that she does suffer from Tourette’s syndrome and ever, so often will tic. We see her meet her idols like Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. We also see her personal relationships with her boyfriend and family.

The documentary shows another side of Billie we do not usually see. She is an amazing artist, but gets frustrated like everyone else and has relationship problems just like everyone. She also expresses that she has had suicidal thoughts and her music helps her get out of her dark thoughts. This documentary felt comforting and unfiltered.

Honestly, 10 out of 10 for this documentary. Personally, I love Billie Eilish as a person and an artist. Seeing another side of Billie made me so emotional and I actually cried watching this. Her music is just so unique and therapeutic to me. Also, seeing Billie win six grammys for her second album was just so amazing because she really deserves it and worked so hard. Overall a great watch and was very humbling to watch since it was so unfiltered and raw.
