Review of Miss Americana: a Glimpse Into the Life of Taylor Swift

‘Miss Americana’ is a 2020 American documentary film that chronicles Taylor Swift’s life and career over the period of several years.

When it comes to portraying Taylor Swift, the film has been regarded as an unvarnished and emotionally honest look at the singer-songwriter and star in the midst of a metamorphosis in her life.

We see snippets of the 30-year-old pop supernova as she strides onstage in fire-engine-red lipstick and clothes that appear to be carved out of glitter in “Taylor Swift: Miss Americana.” We witness her greeting sobbing admirers in Tokyo, as well as in the studio with Joel Little, where she noodles away at the piano and nails down the hook of a song like “ME!”

It was directed by Lana Wilson and got an IMDb rating of 7.4 out of 10.

Plot of Miss Americana:

 The movie’s plot revolves around a lady who has spent her life making outsiders happy and now has to figure out what makes her happy, even if it upsets some of her followers. When Swift’s rise to stardom and her public persona pushed her into dark depths, Wilson charts it. As “the good girl,” Swift understands the importance of not causing controversy or upsetting others with her persona.

Although she played the nice girl, her reputation remained shaky as she became entangled in media disputes concerning her dating life, honesty, and temperament. Despite this, she was still a famous actress. A seemingly hopeless circumstance forces Swift to dig deep and figure out what she values most in life.

If you’re interested in learning about Swift’s creative process, you’ll find plenty of behind-the-scenes material here, but the documentary doesn’t focus on her pop songs or why she’s been able to thrive where other singer-songwriters haven’t.

Final Thoughts

With the help of the documentary, Swift is given the opportunity to speak freely about the topics of her weight, love life, and what the public expects of her. While Swift’s self-consciousness as a public figure makes her an intriguing primary figure, that awareness turned out to be both a blessing and a curse.

It’s clear from the start that this is a carefully crafted pop-diva image-management confection, with nothing left on the cutting room floor that’s too dark, untidy, or odd.
