VERDICT – 2/4
1) Ultimate millennials meltdown. Rich spoiled attention-seeking millennials cheated in broad daylight by their favorite medium – the social media. This Instagram armageddon is the exemplary example of blind consumerism in the era of so-called “social media influencers”.
2) Billy McFarland’s FYRE festival was a scam from the word go. The shocking thing is how the super investigative western media played along Billy and promoted this shitstorm without an iota of scrutiny.
1) This documentary documents Billy’s history and the events run-up to the disastrous festival but not the actual chaos on the Bahamian island. Very little time is given to actual festival attendees.
