The challenge is to make it more than just an infomercial. Seen that way, Blackpink: Light Up the Sky manages to offer a welcome reminder that even for K-pop's reigning queens, all that glitters isn't always gold.
The K-pop phenomenon may still feel new to some consumers (it's not), but if nothing else, Suh's film handily does away with the sense that these superstars are simply part of a pre-packaged cultural machine.October 14, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
Here is an economy in which companies make millions by working kids to the bone. Skimming the topic is a missed opportunity, but the film's winsome stars are its saving grace.
What does it mean that Blackpink seems more interesting in a documentary than in the music that led to the doc's creation? Perhaps it's the strategy for survival the women know they'll need.
The lack of controversy in "Light Up the Sky" can make the movie feel tightly manicured. But what you miss in internet-fueled scuttlebutt, you gain in human insight.October 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
BLACKPINK changes languages from English to Korean to Thai seemingly at random. But as I saw more of these discussions, I could detect a more consistent rhythm in the way they discourse, synchronizing their thoughts to one another.November 20, 2020 | Full Review…
