A very intimate behind the scene

Director Alex Ross Perry strives to get behind the scenes of the grunge scene, as close as possible to the artists. The idea of construction, very inspired by a serial model, is similar to that with which Danny Boyle had structured his Steve Jobs biopic , namely “ by chapter ”, between several key moments in the life of his character.

Here, the course of the film is divided into five acts of 25 minutes in very distinct places: the dressing rooms, the recording studio, Becky's apartment… This very theatrical setting allows you to attend a closed session hyper intimate with all the details of the girls' gradual descent into hell, and detailing the difficulty of human relationships
