    To the people calling this 'self-indulgent, hollow and vain': congratulations you've found exactly the point. Something Lana del Rey often does in her work is to paint a caricature of the American dream, or, if you will, the darker side of the coin maybe; which is (to certain extent– we don't want to hurt anybody's feelings) hollow and self-indulgent, dangerous even sometimes and I think that this film shows exactly that.
    This is why it doesn't matter that the imposers don't look like the Hollywood icons, maybe it's even because it's nearly impossible to actually obtain the American dream (which they obviously symbolize)

    Can't believe they managed to splice in new (to me) excerpts from old interviews, actually impressed the same stuff wasn't constantly repeated at me👏
