Miss Americana Trailer: Sundance Taylor Swift Doc Comes to Netflix

missamericana

The Sundance film festival gets underway this week in Park City, Utah, and the opening night film is the upcoming Taylor Swift documentary Miss Americana. For those of us who can’t be at the festival, however, the good news is that it will arrive on Netflix just one week later. Directed by Lana Wilson (After Tiller, The Departure), Miss Americana follows Swift through a transformative period of her career as she grapples with self-doubt and eventually embraces her political voice despite the potential commercial backlash. In some ways it seems to echo the 2006 documentary Shut Up and Sing about the Dixie Chicks and their own struggle with the consequences of expressing political views. There was some controversy over whether her former record label would allow her to use older music and performance footage in the movie but as of last month that seems to have been cleared up. Miss Americana arrives on Netflix on Jan. 31st; check out the trailer below and see what you think.

    Thankfully, it seems like she’s been able to work through some serious problems and become a legitimate artist, with an important message to communicate to all of us subhumans rotting down here at the bottom, in the prole cesspool. A true heroine.

    I was just going to vomit, but then read your comment. Well said!!!

    “the good news is that it will arrive on Netflix just one week later” – is it Sean? Is it really the good news?

    In my mind I was speaking directly to Reed and only Reed.

    How exactly does Reed watch Netflix? It’s not like you can put streaming content into a bargain bin.

  • Sean

    All of Netflix is a bargain bin! I gave him my Netflix login a while back and I think he watches it wherever he can get free wifi. :)

  • Reed seems like the kind of guy to hide a tablet in the bushes by the library so he can set it to download a bunch of stuff and he can come back later and get it.

    Or he’s the type to just go sit in the library and stare at the download progress bar the entire time.
