Gaga: Five Foot Two (2017) -- Lady Gaga documentary -- Netflix





From Walmart shopping trips to doctors visits to rocking the Super Bowl Halftime Show, it's Lady Gaga as you've never seen her in this revealing documentary. Directed by Chris Moukarbel. GAGA: FIVE FOOT TWO follows the superstar at her most vulnerable moments as she pushes through chronic pain, heartbreak and produces a soul-blooming album.

#GagaFiveFootTwo is only on Netflix September 22.

She just postponed the European leg of her tour due to the chronic pain.

Looking forward to seeing this.

I took my dad to see her at the Planet Hollywood theater and saw her do nothing but standards with Tony Bennett. She is an awesome vocal talent.

That said, can't say I'm that excited to watch her struggle with chronic pain for 2 hours. Will probably still watch this sometime on Netflix though...

Just finished it. Pretty good doc. Covers a lot of her day-to-day life, culminating with her Super Bowl halftime performance. Yes, it does show some scenes of her chronic pain but it's not the whole movie. There are some uplifting scenes (her interacting with her family, in the recording studio, loving her fans). One highlight is her performing an unplugged version of Bad Romance that's amazing. Another is her showing up at a Walmart when Joanne was released.

Watched this yesterday and it was ok. I guess I liked more of the stuff in the studio. The Mark Ronson/GaGa stuff was cool and outside of family seemed to have had the best bond of all. The family stuff was fine, but I'm curious how much was cut out. It's not really epic enough especially as it grinds its way to the end. Her guerrilla marketing Wal-Mart campaign (as she watches in real-time how many people are illegally downloading her album) to get people into stores was clever.

Sure, it's watchable especially if you're a fan, but it's just ok.
