Must-see new music documentary movies

Regular readers will know that we are big fans of music documentaries, so our heartbeats quicken ever so slightly when a list of four new Emmy-nominated music documentaries is suggested by The Hollywood Reporter.

The New York Times' Framing Britney Spears tells the recent story of Britney Spears' fight for control of her own life from her father.

For us, it shines a huge spotlight on the modern culture of celebrity worshipping and the thin veil of reality that this illusion is constructed from.

Apple TV+ has produced a movie about the life of Billie Eilish called The World's a Little Blurry.

It's a behind-the-scenes look at her rise to stardom and the crazy pressure that this teenager needs to endure as a part of her chosen life path.

If you're a kid from the 60s / 70s and partial to a bit of disco dancing whenever you get the chance (usually at weddings) then HBO’s The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart is going to get you going for sure.

It's a story of resilience and the reimagining of a brand as circumstances change.

Finally, a film about the abusive life of rock n roll superstar Tina Turner; HBO’s Tina offers viewers Tina's own definitive take of the abuse she experienced while married to musical partner Ike Turner by way of examining, decades after she left him and embarked on a solo career, how the trauma of that abuse still affects her today.

They all look like winners to us and perhaps offer a stark reminder that fame and fortune is certainly not what it's all cracked up to be.
