GLOSSARY: Robbie Williams is a superstar on the verge of a nervous breakdown

When estnctiletho Robbie was brought by his mother to audition for the British answer to the boy band New Kids On The Block called Take That, who could have known that her son’s life came first.

Robbie was drunk, at the age of twenty and twenty-one, he looked up to the band almost like a deity, and when he rubbed his teeth for a while, he found out that he was literally the so-called fifth wheel on the wagon.

So he started taking drugs, not being able to smoke, and generally giving a ton of mouthfuls to tabloids. In a normal band, it would have been an advertisement, but for the sweet boys, whose person was a pre-pubescent audience, such an alotria was not suitable.

The calls to the duo didn’t help, Robbie went to bed and when he had had enough, he left the band’s phenomenal dream. Director Joe Pearlman’s documentary offers the times of a gathering of crying fans holding placards to make Robbie Williams reconsider his departure.

Be mad at Robbie, the reporter asks the female fan. Yes, zn emotional answer. And would you listen to his music if he went on a word spree?, ask yourself again, what will he get, and the answer is: No.

At first it was true. The first hundred of the documentary follows Williams’ career immediately after leaving Take That, when he dealt with alcohol and drugs and released his debut Life Thru a Lens (1997). It didn’t interest anyone, it sold a measly 33,000 copies after a day, and it seemed that Robbie’s career outside of the gold-bearing girl Take That would have a long life.

Then angels called for help. Literally, the single with the tender ballad Angels unleashed a single robbiemnia. Pushed away by the band’s fast-track printer, he climbed on top of the hitpard and rode in.

Pension or favorability?

The feeling of satisfaction could not have been stronger, yet Robbie was not satisfied. It emerged from the documentary that, on the one hand, he never considered himself to be a real singer and musician, and his singing was about entertainment, see one of his biggest hits, Let Me Entertain You, on the other hand, somewhere deep down, he longed for a little different music, not the kind he offered to the general public .

I could choose: pension, or favorability, answer to the camera and to the address of the song Rock DJ noted: I wanted to write Karma Police, but instead I wrote Karma Chameleon, I write the subtitles this quick and true abbreviation, don’t reflect at all and hell I wanted to write nothing deep, but I was writing a breather.

It’s as if his own career didn’t affect Robbie much at all, but he was tormented by stress, trauma and panic attacks on stage, which the documentary just recorded.

In this openness and implacability, luck is valuable. A bit of a problem is the length. Reisr Pearlman had at his disposal thousands of hours of records collected by people around Williams over a period of ten years. Especially because of that two feet, she swelled twenty minutes on the clock, which is enough, and both could have been more drastic.

The kind of vc is the form of the documentary is a rhyming and rhythmic collection of the main protagonist, who watches himself on the laptop screen at home on the sofa in the lower ass and voices the video. It’s not a full private one, after a few minutes the viewer starts to wake up, or I feel like some kind of dirty voyeurism.
