    Ultimately, Life Is but a Dream remains a victory for her fans. Casual viewers will most likely glean the same sense of the superstar's life as one might from a magazine feature. But for serious fans of the fiercely private superstar, this remains a window into her life.

    It’s an oddly unnecessary piece of work, a vanity production from top to bottom with very little that feels genuinely candid.

    Life Is But A Dream is a vanity project that could have been a helluva film--if she had given up control and let the story tell itself.
