REVIEW | Katy Perry: Part of Me
This is a fun movie. Sure it’s PR propaganda that never paints Katy Perry in a bad light whether in conceiving her ‘art’, her family history or the eventual downfall of her marriage, but it’s fun all the same. If you’re not a fan of her music then you might find it hard going what with large amounts of live footage carefully chosen to represent the topic being discussed at that time, but if you don’t like her music then why the heckings would you watch the movie or even read this? There are a few moments that teeter on becoming moving, mostly those occurring in the aftermath of the relationship breakdown, but, if you’re a cynical bastard like me, you’ll find even the cuter, more natural scenes somewhat manipulative as you know that they would not paint Katy in a bad light so how do you know the difference between a genuine nice moment and a falsified one? Regardless, while this doesn’t quite manage to be a documentary in my eyes, I had a good, fun time with it.
Oh and the 3D is exactly what you would expect from it, purely there for firing foam canons and the like at the screen. I enjoyed it a great deal as, while I like the technology being used to create depth, I bloody love big balls coming at my face.
