On Oct. 13, Taylor Swift released “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” internationally which is a documentary that captures the energy of the sold-out show at the SoFi Stadium and truly makes it feel like you are at the concert.

Everyone should go see the film whether you are a “Swiftie” or not.

The film opens with an overview shot of the stage and the sound of fan’s cheers blasting through the theater. The opening scene transports the audience to the stadium and puts into perspective how many people were at the show.

Despite one adult ticket to see this film being about $20, the documentary was two hours 48 minutes making the price pretty reasonable. There were also themed popcorn buckets and cups available for purchase which cost $20 when bought together.

The film was playing at the same theater over 20 times throughout the day, allowing individual screenings to not be crowded. During the screening I went to, there were a total of six people.

The fans that went made friendship bracelets and also wore Swift’s merch. So many people sang along and screamed during the chants.

According to long-time fan Galilea Jimenez, “I wanted to go see this film because I was unable to buy tickets to go see the show in person, but I feel like this movie did a great job at making up for that,” she said.

Despite filming only taking place during one night, the film was high quality and put together well. Swift and Director Sam Wrench clarified that the fans made the tour what it is. Throughout the film, there were many shots of fans singing along to songs along with overhead shots of the crowd.

This documentary is different from the other Taylor Swift films on Netflix. Since there was not a single album this tour revolved around there was no showing of how an album was made, but there were scenes where Swift talked about a song on stage.

Overall, this film is very interesting and shows how impressive a concert this big is. I would highly recommend watching this film whether you are a fan of Taylor Swift or not. This is a great option for fans who were unable to get tickets to see her in person.

The only thing I would change about the film would be to include backstage shots.

According to Fastcompany.com, the earliest date “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” can be put onto streaming services is Jan. 12, 2024.

There has been no announcement regarding any release on streaming services.
