Billie Eilish’s new documentary, “The World’s a Little Blurry,” has landed on Apple TV+, with early audience reactions describing it as “raw” and “unpretentious.”

The documentary — directed by RJ Cutler — was released on the streaming platform on Feb.26.

The project follows the first three years of the multiple Grammy-winning “Bad Guy” star’s music career, and also includes clips and photos from her childhood, as reported by The Independent.

The two-hour and 15 minute feature gives viewers a peek into Eilish’s world, as she navigates life on tour and at home.

It includes home videos and archival footage taken prior to the singer’s fame, as well as new footage shot by Cutler and his team.

As per Eilish’s own admission, the documentary leaves a lot out, as she grew up watching celebrity documentaries and didn’t want the world to be completely privy to her life.

The documentary does include several moving revelations though.

Among them are the singer’s battle with Tourette Syndrome, that she had a boyfriend whom she managed to keep private during her rise to fame, and her struggles with physical injuries amid a gruelling tour around the world.

The 18-year-old pop star’s fans have reacted to the singer’s new documentary by flocking to Twitter and posting positive reviews.

“I had no idea what to expect and I absolutely loved this doc. It was just raw and unpretentious goodness,” wrote one user.

Another added: “Stayed up way too late and watched the Billie Eilish documentary and it was INCREDIBLE i adore her so much.”

#TheWorldsALittleBlurry is the best documentary i’ve ever seen i’m in tears and billie is out of this world literally,” wrote a third person.

“Just finished the billie eilish documentary and i’m fully sobbing at 3:30am,” wrote a fourth.

Another said: “The documentary was really good. And I’m mind blown that her last album was created in their bedroom.”

As well as documenting aspects of the singer’s personal life, “The World’s A Little Blurry” provides an intimate look at the making of her 2019 debut album, which Eilish produced together with her brother Finneas O’Connell at their family home in Highland Park, Los Angeles. 

The duo picked up many awards at last year’s Grammy ceremony for their debut “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?,” including Album of the Year.
