      Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News Gomez’s candor and willingness to show herself at her worst and her best is admirable and commendable. Rated: 3/4 Nov 9, 2022 Full Review Brian Lowry CNN.com If Gomez chafes, understandably, at feeling like “a product,” My Mind & Me doesn’t escape the notion that it’s leveraging that fame, and the product-like part of her existence, in order to sell it. Nov 4, 2022 Full Review Noel Murray Los Angeles Times Gomez has been open about her struggles with anxiety and bipolar depression, but her honesty about mental health has never been expressed as starkly as in the documentary “Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me.” Nov 4, 2022 Full Review Chauncey K. Robinson People's World This is not your usual “famous person” documentary that attempts to paint a larger-than-life picture of its subject. Rather, the film uses the phenomenon of celebritydom to focus on the realities of a society that is alienating for many. Rated: B+ Mar 16, 2023 Full Review Carey-Ann Pawsey Orca Sound Even for those (like myself) who do not consider themselves amongst the millions of Selena Gomez fans, this film will be of interest. That is because of its raw and intimate nature. We get to see a human being. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 21, 2022 Full Review tt stern-enzi WXIX-TV (Cincinnati, OH) You kind of feel the anxiety and how destructive that can be for someone who's been thrust in the spotlight... and she gives you access to all of it. Rated: A Dec 16, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Roshin R Powerful documentary. Selena Gomez, you are an inspirational, incredible lady sharing your unexpected travels into the realm of mental health while enduring your medical condition, Lupes. Through all of your trials and tribulations, you have managed to connect with billions of youth around our world, teaching children that to love yourself, embrace a mental health concern by understanding that condition and seeking unconditional assistance to overcome that challenge. In the end, Selena, your impact is immeasurable. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/21/24 Full Review Paula V Tonedaef. Two hours of either her team asking if she is ok or her talking about Justin Bieber yet again. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/24 Full Review Kyle M A documentary of this kind at a qualifiable point of one's career not only urgently underlines as continuous inspirational platform whilst seeking empathy but also a case on how fame can pressurize, particularly for one renowned young star opening up her struggles in a profound journey of realization and demonstratively mustered true strength. (B+) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Apple TV+ presents the story of one of the biggest stars/artists today, Selena Gomez She got her start with Barney then on 'Wizards of Waverly Place' on Disney Channel and she was the queen of the social media app She also had news coverage with her love life mostly centering around Justin Bieber For me she's one of my favorite celebrities that has managed to make it through the industry going from acting to music and so forth Selena also became a humanitarian raising money for schools for young women in Kenya as well as doing her own fashion line Most recently she made a comeback on her own cooking show on HBO Max which helped during the pandemic And not too long ago she was diagnosed with lupus (an auto immune disease) involving low blood cell count and if her blood pressure rose too much she'd suffer a stroke She has been a child star her whole life raised by her mom who was separated and the world has only known her for her fame As a kid in school she was an outcast and didn't have many friends Back in 2016 after 55 performances and her Revival Tour was canceled because she experienced a mental breakdown on stage officially being diagnosed with bipolar depression and anxiety Sadly the WE Charity Selena was also sponsoring was getting shut down therefore putting a damper on all the work she had built up being dismantled A lot of this she was dealing with would weigh heavily on anybody given what she has already been through Mental health and depression are some of the toughest things people have to face sometimes their entire lives With this R-rated documentary Selena finally opens up about the overwhelming pressure that comes with her job; she wants to be good by herself and not be her past Like anyone Selena can become her own worst enemy letting things spiral if she lets them Nobody wants to feel like a product and she makes that very clear The six year journey has her going back to her home, school and wake up to the person she wants to be for the rest of her life thanks to Alex Keshishian's direction who also did 'Madonna: Truth or Dare' Archival footage and interviews (painful as they are but truthful) lay thick the realization something was wrong and how Selena wants to confront it Every breath taken is a breakthrough, we all want to learn to breathe again, feeling vain can unfortunately come with the job of being famous on a daily basis, if no one had to the courage to put themselves out there with their struggles there would be no change, how do we identify loneliness?, connections make everything easier There are structural issues and melodrama that get in the way of viewing this but Keshishian makes this brutally honest about this one woman's tough trek to make it back on top whether it's seeking help or getting over a heartbreak while writing a new song, it takes so much courage wanting to end your life but to not do it is a bigger miracle Selena Gomez wants to do bigger things and not fall back and actually make as many people care about her future endeavors outside the spotlight it's more than just the culture she inhabits This is a woman that can still be happy, mental health is just something she has to face like many as a friend but believing she is a work in progress but also enough Pop music needs more honest celebrities like this telling it all how to fight our own personal hells and Selena Gomez is doing just that Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/07/23 Full Review starfire i Now I know why Justin left you! You self entitled cry baby 😬😬😬. I'm going to find you. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/27/23 Full Review MJ Drummer 2 Simplemente gracias Selena por compartir tu historia con tus fans. Eres asombrosa !!!
