Instead of showing us the real Beyoncé, if such a person exists, what this documentary shows us is that Beyoncé’s is as much a produced affair as her latest album or music video. There’s no shame in that. In fact, it might even be brilliant, that no matter what, she’s keeping herself to herself. Ultimately, Beyoncé understands her life as commodity. She understands what her audience wants. She gives us exactly that.
