Framing Britney Spears ★★★½

Samantha Stark's 'Framing Britney Spears' gathers voices from the sidelines of Britney Spears’ career and pop culture experts to puzzle together a clearer picture of the way Spears was treated by the media and society at large. Spears essentially ran so every other female pop star of the moment could walk. Control their own narrative. The investigative documentary also delves into the ongoing legal battle over her conservatorship. While it clarifies some things of what we already know, it sheds no light on the endless amount that we don't. Still, to have the full story detailed in chronological order with the respect and scrutiny it deserves is heartening. #FreeBritney.
