St. Vincent & Carrie Brownstein Attempt To Satirize Pop-Star Documentaries In The Nowhere Inn

We’re in the midst of a pop-star documentary boom. The past few years have brought an onslaught of films promising authentic glimpses into the lives of glittering pop figures: the bracing Billie Eilish documentary The World’s A Little Blurry, Taylor Swift’s carefully orchestrated Miss Americana, Beyoncé’s “Beychella” concert film Homecoming, even the Jonas Brothers jumping into the fray with Chasing Happiness. These movies give musicians — and their management — the chance to control their narra...

St. Vincent – “The Nowhere Inn”

At the end of the week, The Nowhere Inn — the mockumentary starring St. Vincent and Carrie Brownstein — is arriving on video-on-demand services (and in select theaters). Annie Clark also did a soundtrack/score for the film, which will come out on September 19th, a couple days after the film is released. Today, St. Vincent is sharing a new track called “The Nowhere Inn,” which acts as a quasi-theme song for the film and comes with a video directed by Nowhere Inn director Bill Benz.

St. Vincent talks bringing ‘Daddy’s Home’ to Hollywood Bowl as ‘The Nowhere Inn’ film debuts

“Daddy’s Home,” the sixth studio album from St. Vincent, arrived in May, but Annie Clark, the artist behind the stage name, says it hasn’t felt fully finished until now. “A record doesn’t really feel complete to me until I’ve actually played the songs for people and with people in real-time,” Clark says on a recent phone call. “Because you get to see how the energy in the crowd changes. “You get to see, like, ‘Oh, they’re all singing along to that part,’” she says. “You get to know in a real way...

‘The Nowhere Inn’ Review: St. Vincent and Carrie Brownstein Tackle the Surreal Side of Fame [Sundance 2020]

On stage, St. Vincent is sexy, mysterious, and seemingly all-powerful. Offstage, though, she’s Annie Clark – and Annie Clark is a bit of a boring nerd. Or so says The Nowhere Inn, a surreal meta-comedy about fame – and what we demand from the famous people we idolize. Framed as both a faux documentary and a narrative film, The Nowhere Inn finds Clark’s best friend Carrie Brownstein, of Sleater-Kinney and Portlandia fame, setting out to make a documentary about St. Vincent on tour. But as Clark ...

‘The Nowhere Inn’: Film Review

Bill Benz’s high-concept rock mockumentary opens with a white limo speeding through the desert.
