HBO Releases Alanis Morissette Documentary Trailer: Look + Listen

In advance of the upcoming documentary film that looks back at the early and 1995 ground breaking success of Alanis Morissette, HBO has unveiled their trailer for Jagged.

Featuring footage of Morissette performing, along with talking head interviews about her multi-million selling Jagged Little Pill LP, the film’s synopsis notes, “Featuring an in-depth interview with Alanis, as well as never-before-seen archival material, Jagged explores her beginnings as a young Canadian pop star, the rocky path she faced navigating the male-dominated music industry, and the glass ceiling she shattered on her journey to becoming the international icon and empowered artist she is today.”

In a statement to Rolling Stone concerning her review of the doc, the former Warner Bros. recording artist criticized Jagged, saying it “includes implications and facts that are simply not true.” Morissette explained her involvement in the film, and why she no longer wants to support it:

“I agreed to participate in a piece about the celebration of Jagged Little Pill’s 25th anniversary and was interviewed during a very vulnerable time (while in the midst of my third postpartum depression during lockdown).” “I was lulled into a false sense of security and their salacious agenda became apparent immediately upon my seeing the first cut of the film. This is when I knew our visions were in fact painfully diverged. This was not the story I agreed to tell. I sit here now experiencing the full impact of having trusted someone who did not warrant being trusted.” “While there is beauty and some elements of accuracy in this/my story to be sure — I ultimately won’t be supporting someone else’s reductive take on a story much too nuanced for them to ever grasp or tell.”

HBO’s Music Box series will air weekly following the premiere of Jagged. Subsequent episodes include “DMX: Don’t Try To Understand,” “Listening to Kenny G,” and “Juice WRLD: Into the Abyss.”
