Don't ask how I wound up seeing this, but it was pretty goddamn boring. I have more than a passing interest in K-pop, but BTS don't come off as particularly compelling in this concert doc. Kinda wish it had been more concert than doc, tbh, and that it was a little less maudlin. Shout out to the orchestral score that just sounds like Chilly Gonzales turned up super loud.
I'm pretty torn about this movie, tbh. The performances are great and the filmmaking is impressive, but I wasn't as affected as I expected. It's my fault for waiting for them to send me the movie to my doorstep to actually watch it, obviously, but now I wish I had seen it before having spent several months of people telling me I should see it.
The end is breathless and nutty but I need to unpack the implications of it.…
