Review

This sorry excuse for a documentary is not really a journalistic delve into a complex character and life as much as it is a proponent for and symptom of the corrupted culture it depicts. It is a look at the life of Britney Spears from the same distance and with as much weightiness as the paparazzi portrayed in the film were able to give us with their often disgraceful photos. Watching this film gives you no new information, only new grief. And the filmmakers don't even raise questions, they  only repeat the ones that have already been asked. The irony of Framing Britney Spears is that it is not about the demise of a star, but the demise of an entire nation of would-be stars, all raised to sacrifice their integrity and privacy for their 15 minutes of fame, but in here popping out in numbers to lambast that same culture.
