I liked the fractured narrative here. It's not excuted perfectly but at moments it was brilliant. Regarding the stale rise and fall arc, I adore Edith Piaf but filmmakers are too often compelled to choose subjects to whom this formula applies. It's lazy. I'm trying to think the last time I saw a biopic of someone who wasn't an addict, went bankrupt, then died in a plane crash while committing suicide.
