CULT – 0

VERDICT – 2/4

 
PROS –
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.

 
CONS –
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.
