    Full review at the Lens

    Written by Clark and Carrie Brownstein, a progenitor of Clark’s who leads Sleater-Kinney and one-half of the Portlandia duo, the meta-fictional film tracks the artist during the Masseduction tour. Where the live show required closer reading to distill its ideas of identity and celebrity, director Bill Benz’s film makes the thesis glaringly apparent. The pseudo-doc-cum-psychological mindbender is a winking vanity project about vanity so thuddingly self-aware that even the winks are in scare-quotes.

    ★★★★

    I might have said that Nia DaCosta’s sequel is brutal, stylish pop horror questioning the use of collective trauma for art’s sake, and its complex answers are ultimately cathartic. A Tenebrae for 2021, in both senses.
