When you're an icon of this stature, the voyeur in us wants to get to know the person behind all this glamorous machinery. Mourkarbel delivers that glimpse in spades.

But aside from the story about her aunt and a few brief mentions about her split from Taylor Kinney, there's not an arc to the documentary, let alone stakes.

An ironic sort of vanity piece in that it tries to be such an anti-vanity piece -- bluntly intimate, rather than a peek behind the curtain -- but it feels honest all the way.

... I was grateful for its moments of ambition and for the look at Gaga as an artist whose hard work in creating music and an experience to surround that music is second to none in the pop universe right now.

While Gaga: Five Foot Two is engaging enough to satisfy fans, and she is certainly interesting and likeable enough to hold your attention for the 100 minutes, its ultimately a little disappointing. Boring even.

If there is something that Gaga is not, it's shy. [Full review in Spanish]

While it's merely a peek behind her rhinestone curtain, Gaga: Five Foot Two is still an interesting one.

Gaga allows the camera into various realms that emphasize her vulnerability, her flaws, and her weaknesses, which only serve to empower her as a pop star by reinforcing her underlying humanity

Indulgent, exhibitionistic, but putting her pain-management struggles out there for all to see.

An accessible star comes to life; language, partial nudity.

Five Foot Two is an entertaining and humanising documentary for this artist who started her career with a kind of alien appeal. But it's also a carefully calculated film...

Gaga is on volatile form... yet can be excused a few nerves given that she will be performing in front of a global audience of 117 million, and there's enough self-awareness to temper the divadom.

Lady Gaga can be a great musician, it's true. But the new documentary about her, Gaga: Five Foot Two, would make anybody unfamiliar with her question why.
September 28, 2017
Gaga: Five Foot Two isn't quite sure what kind of documentary it wants to be.
September 27, 2017
To say emotions run high in many sequences would be an understatement.
September 25, 2017
The documentary, completely unmasks the pop star who has dominated her genre for the last decade. That person is no superhero. She is very much a mortal.
September 25, 2017
... for now, Gaga is asking not for applause but understanding.
September 22, 2017
Five Foot Two is the moment an icon of statuesque proportions is captured shrinking to human-size.
September 22, 2017
Five Foot Two never quite shakes the feel of a longform advert for Gaga's new phase that's preaching to the converted.
September 22, 2017
Manages to create a sense of intimacy and revelation, even as we sense that there is really no such thing as an unguarded moment for Lady Gaga.
