To mark the end of 2018, global superstar Taylor Swift and streaming service Netflix threw one hell of a New Year’s Eve party. There were snakes, there was glitter, there was confetti and there were the best indoor fireworks you’ve ever seen.
Didn’t attend? Not to worry, there’s still time.
The movie version of Swift’s 53-date, award-winning, record-topping blockbuster Reputation stadium tour was released on Netflix Monday. Having attended two dates on the tour and seen Swift perform live for the first time in three years, I thought I knew what to expect from the movie. What I didn’t expect was feeling equally as moved and starry-eyed while tucked up on my sofa on a cold winter’s night as I did back on those warm evenings last summer. Not only did it spirit me back onto the stadium arena, but it left me with an overwhelming sense of relief that this spectacle has been committed to film I can revisit any time.
It’s a smart move for Taylor Swift to partner with Netflix rather than a US-based TV network or put out a straight-to-DVD release. The streaming service is pretty much unrivalled in its ability to bring Reputation to a global audience at the same time everywhere in the world for an affordable price. For reasons of cost and geography, many fans were unable to attend the tour, which visited only five countries outside the US. But Netflix lowers the barrier to entry, making Swift’s latest live performances accessible to pretty much anyone with an internet connection.
