"Haven't always been this way
I wasn't born a renegade
I felt alone, still feel afraid
I stumble through it anyway"
Pink - All I now so far
P!nk is not only one of today's best singer/songwriters, but she has also created her own musical and visual universe in her videos promoting her bad girl side. With over 90 million records sold worldwide, she has established herself as one of the world's best-selling musical artists with eight albums to her credit, Can't Take Me Home (2000), Missundaztood (2001), Try This (2003), I'm Not Dead (2006), Funhouse (2008), The Truth About Love (2012), Beautiful Trauma (2017) and Hurts 2B Human (2019). His first live album Pink: All I Know So Far, which will be released in a few days on May 21, will be accompanied by a documentary directed by Michael Gracey (The Greatest Showman (2017)).
The film follows Pink on her Beautiful Trauma World Tour as she balances her role as an artist with that of mother, wife. A mix of European tour footage, backstage interviews and personal documents, P!nk: All I Know So Far gives us a better understanding of this great artist who seems to want to put no real divide between her craft and her personal life. With 156 concerts in 18 countries, Alecia Beth Moore, better known as P!nk, reveals herself completely and presents us her daily life during a tour that culminated in concerts at Wembley.
While fans could have expected a documentary focusing on many songs in full live, we must admit that P!nk: All I Know So Far focuses almost exclusively on the private life of Pink between her husband Carey Hart and their two children Willow Sage Hart and Jameson Moon Hart. There is a certain frustration that there are no real interviews and that director Michael Gracey doesn't seem to have enough free rein to make a real documentary that is invested and not just a marketing product to complement Pink's first live album. This same frustration is felt during the concert scenes, most of which are cut and leave no complete song on the program.
Yet P!nk: All I Know So Far scores several points in the way it portrays a sincere artist who truly realizes her musical evolution. From her difficult beginnings to her worldwide rock star status, P!nk: All I Know So Far shows us the impact of her songs on a worldwide audience and especially the impressive number of hits in her catalog. The clips from the Wembley concerts also show us how much we miss the concerts and how this global pandemic changed our lives forever and showed that what we took for granted was not. Pink is certainly one of those few artists capable of bringing together insane crowds singing in harmony to their songs and fully experiencing the highlights of these Dantean concerts, especially in European stadiums.
This documentary, despite some frustrations, allows us to discover that this artist has remained grounded unlike others like Madonna who have no respect for their audience and arrive late to their own concerts without apologizing or even canceling concert dates at the last moment. Despite the self-promotional nature of P!nk: All I Know So Far, this documentary is worth watching to better understand the global phenomenon of Pink and to see that she is a true workaholic who has managed to find the almost perfect balance between her life as an artist and as a mother and married woman. You knew the artist through her songs and music videos, this documentary will let you know who this undeniably charming artist really is.
