A little more comedic, a little more about millennials.
July 3, 2019
Fyre Fraud works better as a companion piece to Fyre than a full documentary in its own right.
April 11, 2019
Fyre Fraud goes further by tracing Fyre Festival's dirty-money trail, and perhaps more importantly, pulls back the curtain on the making of a millennial con artist.
March 16, 2019
Informative and refreshing documentary showing a more serious side of what happened with the infamous festival that never came to be. [Full review in Spanish].
February 1, 2019
Fyre Fraud convincingly identifies the fraud-fest as just one more chimera of modern times, a 24-hour game of "let's pretend," in which one cannot tell if someone is a delusional liar or the smartest person in the room.

It's interesting to hear the madness explained, but Hulu's documentary Fyre Fraud zooms out to contextualize Fyre Festival as a symptom of a much greater issue.
January 28, 2019
The Hulu doc works harder to paint a bigger picture -- such as how McFarland was able to access large amounts of money to fund his schemes. However, its patronizing depiction of millennials may well alienate many of them.
January 26, 2019
Overall, Fyre Fraud works better as a longform journalistic piece. It's sprawling and detailed at the same time.
January 25, 2019
It is so good to see [McFarland] squirm.

I was riveted... couldn't tear myself away from it... it really did point fingers.

Proper event planning can actually pull off a win. Now how many people did Hulu convince to watch?

If you love a story of absolute, no-holds-barred, extravagant disaster, you'll probably want to watch both. But if you just want a better idea of what the heck happened here, the truth is that either film will serve.
January 18, 2019
The Hulu documentary gets into some of the larger ramifications of Fyre Festival, but the glib tone undermines the seriousness of the situation.
January 18, 2019
McFarland, like most scammers, is a wellspring of genius misused for perilous ends...Fyre Fraud is a story of an all-time swindle...
January 17, 2019
Fyre Fraud is a little zippier and pop culture-y in its skewering...
January 17, 2019
This isn't just 90 minutes of uninterrupted schadenfreude, even though it could have been, pretty easily.
January 17, 2019
[A] helpful reminder that, like so many stories, one account can't contain the whole truth.
January 16, 2019
It does a [great] job pointing out the secret villain of this story all along: the subtle menace of social media marketing.
January 16, 2019
It has arguments to make about the insecurities of millennials and the perniciousness of social media. And the arguments don't feel like blather.
January 16, 2019
The Hulu film's biggest draw is a new interview with McFarland himself, looking much gaunter, but coming off, in his every utterance, no less sociopathic.
