‘I Used To Be Normal’ is a documentary highlighting the lives of four women around the world whose lives have been altered because of their love and obsessions with boybands. It embarks us on a journey showing us how obsessions may lead to successful careers and create new experiences and possibilities on the way.
Throughout the documentary, we are shown the lives of four women and how they cope with their obsessions for their all-time favourite bands. We are shown the lives of Elif who is 16, Dara who is 33, Sadia who is 25 and Susan who is 64 which is interesting to see how the older generations deal with obsessions compared to the modern-day society. There isn’t really one main storyline as this isn’t classed as a film but more of a documentary but instead keeps going back and forth through the personal and social lives of each girl and how their love for boybands as changed them as they also go through new life experiences alongside their boyband obsessions. Additionally, you can most likely now tell that the documentary is mostly aimed at the women demographics at any age as they will be more able to relate to each of the girls lives growing up. However, I believe that even some men may be able to take something from this as even if they don’t have a love for music they may still be able to take something from this even if it is based around the music industry.Read more
