Katy 'Clockwork' Perry
4 August 2016 | by bertverwoerdSee all my reviews

This documentary is fantastic in the way it shows just how much work a 12-minute Super Bowl halftime show really is. For months on end, a hundreds-strong production team works their asses off and rehearses dozens of times to get everything just right.

Eight minutes to get the bizarrely huge stage on the field, then 12 minutes in which absolutely nothing can go wrong, then even less time to get everything cleared off the field again for the second half of the game. Hundreds of truly dedicated people in sync like clockwork. A fantastic sight to behold.

On top of this pyramid of machine-like precision is the current queen of pop, Katy Perry. Throughout the 70 minute documentary she shows herself to be a ruthlessly precise and professional person. She shows not to have achieved success because of circumstance, but because of a lifetime of very hard work -- the embodiment of the American Dream.

At one point she confidently stares into the mirror just before the show's about to start and tells herself: you got this. You are worth it. You are where you're supposed to be. She does, and she is. As such, this documentary is all about a truly fantastic woman pulling off the best halftime show in Super Bowl history.
