I saw it earlier this week and loved it, but have also been a fan since I was a kid. I dont mind that it wasn’t hard-hitting, honestly I was just glad to see her get more credit for her creative choices & as an artist in general; it seemed like she was often dismissed as just a pretty jukebox bc she didnt write her own material. I loved seeing her perform the mariachi songs, i wasn’t as familiar with that part of her career. And Penzance! ISuch an incredible voice.

I grew up with "Somewhere Out There," the Neville collaborations, and Canciones de Mi Padre and especially Frenesí -- I appreciated the doc lingering on them.

Seeing her in 1976 or slightly later was one of my first concerts. Enjoyed but wasn't wowed is my vague recollection. I want to watch the doc.

That closing scene of the doc with her nephew and cousin is so touching. Other live footage over the years in this is good too.
Not in the doc- I forgot she covered “Girl’s talk,”

The look in her eyes while she was singing along with them broke me up...like she consciousy knows how she wants to sound but her body is betraying her. I love that she did it on camera though
