Despite being as garish and manufactured as Perry's multi-coloured hair-don'ts, Part Of Me deserves kudos for allowing an element of unpredictability to intrude upon its tween exploitation and sugary vulgarity
Katy Perry: Part of Me may be the single biggest surprise of 2012. Itís not the candy-coated fluff piece many were no doubt expecting, but a spectacularly made, refreshingly candid documentary that takes its subject seriously and spends as much time tugging at the heartstrings as it does dancing to the beat. . I never would have believed it even two or three days ago, but this really is one of the best films of the year, and there are few viewers, Perry fan or no, I wouldnít recommend it to.
