Daniel Levine and Cressida Ward from Food Tryb Table podcast join Flixwatcher to review Daniel’s choice Fyre.

 

 

 

 

Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened is a 2019 documentary about Billy McFarland and the failed Fyre Festival that took place in 2017. It was directed by Chris Smith and co-produced by Jerry Media, the social media agency responsible for promoting Fyre Festival.

Fyre Festival was billed as a luxury, exclusive, influencer festival – the reality was something quite different. Fyre was organized by McFarland and Ja Rule (neither particularly experienced in event management) to initially promote the Fyre music booking app. Trouble begins very early on when, after the promo video is shot on Norman’s Cay island – on the agreement not to mention the connection with Pablo Escobar – is advertised as being once owned by Pablo Escobar. From there things escalate in a series of excruciating misguided and unbelievably arrogant style-car crash viewing at its best.

Scores

Fyre scores very highly across all categories – except repeat viewing. As with most documentaries they offer little reward for repeat viewings. Despite this Fyre scores 3.88 – highly recommended but repeat viewing not required!
