Katy Perry Part of Me 3D
moving documentary is directed by Dan Cutforth and Jane
Lipsitz that gives viewers a backstage pass into the colourful
and amazing life of Katy Perry who is not only one of the most
down to Earth performers in the world but has a unique way of seeing and
interpreting life. She is also a machine and no matter what punches life
throws at her (relationship breakdowns or sheer exhaustion), she
continues to soldier on. Filmed in 3D, this documentary also interviews key people
in Katy's life such as her sister Angela Hudson or best friend Shannon
Woodward that helps give you a great insight into her life.
Apart from seeing what makes Katy tick, the 3D really comes to
life when elements of her concert are shown that almost make it feel
like you are part of it. Best of all, with Katy Perry behind this
documentary, it's almost like a biography which shows her early life as
a gospel singer and how she tried to break into the singing industry.
Probably one of the most endearing things about Perry is her down to
Earth nature and ability to overcome a variety of challenges.
documentary is also quite emotional at times, especially as Katy goes
above and beyond for her fans and with the breakup between her and

on stage with Katy will probably be the highlight of their lives
forever. Add in interviews from other members of her family such as
parents, brother and grandmother and Katy Perry Part of Me really
gives the viewer a unique snapshot into the life of this amazing and
passionate singer which really proves why she is and will remain at the
The video quality of Katy Perry Part of Me is outstanding that

literally jumps out at you. Although the interviews and behind the
scenes are a little flat, where this documentary stands out is with the
concert scenes, especially with all the surreal colours and costumes
used by Katy and her dancers.
is equally impressive thanks to the pumping DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1
Lossless Soundtrack. This is one documentary that needs to be turned up
loud, especially when the Katy sings songs such as Teenage Dream,
Peacock and California Gurls. Levels are perfect, dialogue is crystal
clear and this release makes great use of surround sound. Sound is
definitely 10 out 10!
Special features are a bit of a hit and
miss as most of the special features have been taken directly from the
documentary, just catalogued. Nonetheless, these contain two full
concert experiences of Waking Up in Vegas and Last Friday Night which
are the two full songs. Although not in 3D, they are both fun to watch.
California Dreams Tour: Behind the Scenes that is broken up into several
stages - 5,6,7... Oops... 8", BFF, California Dreams Tour Tattoo,

Away From Me.
