Rather Bland and Stupid
27: Gone Too Soon (2018)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

I watch a lot of documentaries and and sometimes I run across a few where I really wonder if the filmmakers knew anything about the subject they are covering. This documentary takes a look at the "27 Club" of musicians who died at the young age of 27.

You know, you really have to question any documentary that covers this topic and not once mentions Robert Johnson and the notorious "Crossroads" where a lot of this legend began. What we get here are brief bios on Brian JOnes, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse.

Even if you just look at 27: GONE TOO SOON as a documentary on those people it's still quite awful because everyone interviewed are rather annoying and their thoughts on the subject seem a bit... I guess stupid the word. I say that because it seems they want to narrow everyone down to some sort of stereotype and you've even got one guy questioning Cobain being included as a great musician.

The bio's of these people are quite poor and more times than not it seems those being interviewed are just guessing at things. These people have much better stories about them out there so there's no point in watching this documentary for that. The documentary also doesn't take a look at the myths or legends around the 27 Club and all in all this here is just rather poorly made and laughable.
