What’s There in The docmentary?
The film opens amid the rise to fame of Eilish’s song “Ocean Eyes,” which went viral on SoundCloud and received radio play. Billie is on tour three years after recording the song, singing at a modest venue in Salt Lake City.
She assures the crowd that they must be okay since they are the reason she is okay after watching a fan being taken out after being injured. Billie reveals that she doesn’t refer to her admirers as “fans,” but rather as a part of herself, and that she sees her audience as individuals who are going through similar struggles to herself.
Billie and her brother Finneas are recording the song “Bury a Friend” in Finneas’ bedroom. Billie holds up a notepad with drawings and lyrics, as well as ideas for music videos, to the camera. Maggie, Billie’s mother, assists Billie in demonstrating her concept for the music video for the song “When the Party’s Over.” Billie feels irritated throughout the video session owing to a series of errors.
Billie says after the shoot that she intends to direct the remainder of her music videos herself. Later, Billie and Finneas record the album’s opener, which features Billie’s Invisalign, and then talk about the recording process for the song “Bad Guy.” Billie is then shown after completing her driver’s permit exam. Billie’s ideal automobile is a matte black Dodge Challenger, according to her.
In their bedroom, Billie and Finneas practise the song “I Love You.” They would later record the song “My Strange Addiction.” Billie and her crew talk about completing the album and recording the remaining tracks. “All the Good Girls Go to Hell,” a song Billie characterises as “awful,” is recorded by Billie and Finneas. Billie shares her dissatisfaction with the amount of time they have left to complete the record, as well as her criticism of her own singing.
Billie and Finneas quarrel over accessibility in her music while recording “Wish You Were Gay,” which leads to a fight in the kitchen involving Maggie. Billie declares her disdain towards songwriting. Billie appears on the Kevin & Bean Show after finishing the album and presents a video displaying her 12-year-old adoration for Justin Bieber.
At an event when she sings “Lovely” with Khalid, Billie runs into her lover “Q.” Billie is given a matte black Dodge Challenger as a gift for her 17th birthday after filming the album cover. While on tour in Europe, Billie’s mother expresses worry over the song “Xanny,” which deals with the subject of drugs.
Due to her Tourette condition, Billie had a big tic episode when looking at promotional material for the record. Billie is suffering from severe leg discomfort as a result of her excessive hopping at her gigs after singing the song “Copycat.” Billie discusses how injuries forced her to give up dancing when she was younger.

What’s So Special?
Despite the film’s extensive run time, which flies by, there’s no agenda-pushing or forced storyline — instead, the film focuses on the turmoil that comes with being an adolescent, famous or not.
The film is packed with the most humanising moments in what has been a whirlwind few years for the artist and her family, from capturing Eilish’s previously private relationship and its end to watching her mother, Maggie, toss her daughter’s custom Louis Vuitton outfit into their outdoor washing machine the day after Billie’s album came out.
The documentary, instead of glossing over some of the most difficult moments — such as when Eilish hurt her ankle seconds before starting a sold-out Milan show or when she missed the words to a song during her Coachella debut — unpacks them for what they are.
As a result, The World’s a Little Blurry is a welcome return to the documentary as a vehicle for revelation, in contrast to many recent celebrity documentaries that serve more as concert films or hype reels. Despite how frequently Eilish has spoken her family, mental health struggles, and worries about cancel culture, the film manages to show, rather than explain, how these issues have impacted and continue to effect her as an adolescent and public figure.

Many of Eilish’s songs have been conceptualised in her notebook, and many of those sketches have also appeared in her music videos. Her aim had always been to start “flowing black” out of her eyes in the video for the gloomy ballad “When the Party’s Over.” She even put the concept to the test in her backyard, where her mother sat at a table and drank from an empty glass as her father cleaned up dog excrement in the background. The video turned out just how she had envisioned it: the vocalist swallows a black liquid, which then flows out of her eyes as the song develops.
