Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (2016)

Director(s): Alexis Bloom, Fisher Stevens. 95 min. Documentary.

A love letter to the mother-daughter relationship of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher - becoming ever more poignant by their sudden deaths three weeks ago, just one day apart. But I'm not sure whether this would've still received an astonishing 100% score on the Tomatometer, if the recent tragedy was taken out of the equation. After all, this shows a mother and daughter who only think and talk about money, material, and fame, and who cling onto one another, because nothing else concerns them. We never hear them talking about anything ... "important". Take-home message: never get close to your heroes.
