In 2019, Billie Eilish became the youngest musician in history to take home wins in the four main Grammy categories——Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year—in the same year. Now it’s time to pull back the curtain on how she rose to success all before she ever turned 18, with the upcoming documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry on Apple TV+, as well as in theaters, this week, according to Decider.
Directed by R. J. Cutler (The War Room), this film will take fans through the musician writing her debut studio album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? alongside her brother Finneas O’Connell, in their childhood home all the way up to the night where she and her brother took home all the Grammys. It’s an intimate look at a world-famous artist, but it’s also a reminder of just how young Billie Eilish is—she’s a teenager who bickers with her family, just like anyone else.
The film is a must-watch for Billie Eilish fans, to say the least. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the Billie Eilish documentary, including the Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry release date and release time.

What is The World's A Little Blurry about?

“Blurry” — directed, with determined informality, by R.J. Cutler (“The War Room,” “The September Issue”) — doesn’t tell a story about Eilish so much as sit back and presume that one will unfold. Which, of course, it does. Her 2019 debut album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?,” is the product of countless home bedroom recording sessions with her brother, Finneas, who produces all of her music. That album goes on to earn her five Grammys. Cameras were there throughout, says New York Times.
And yet “Blurry” isn’t triumphant, strictly speaking. Instead, it relies on the accretive power of the mundane. It moves forward without narration, and sometimes without narrative rhythm — often it feels almost observational, like a nature film. The abundance of footage, and space it’s given to breathe — the movie is almost two and a half hours long — captures the restless loneliness of superstardom.
Eilish’s approach to that fame is both game and shrugging. Her songwriting is visceral and often dark: she shows the journal in which she draws ghoulish scenes and writes poems that may become lyrics, including, in all caps, “I WANA END ME.” Even when the film shows fans clamoring for Eilish, it remains resolute in centering her. In footage drawn from various concerts around the world, the sound focuses tightly on her vocals, turning even arena shows into sites of outrageous intimacy.
At times, “Blurry” suggests greater friction happening just out of sight, gently spotlighting the tug of war between Eilish and the expectations placed upon her. Closing in on completing the album, Finneas grumbles, “I feel like I’ve been, like, told to write a hit, but I’ve been told to not tell Billie that we have to write a hit.” Later, when Eilish and Finneas are recording her song for the James Bond film “No Time to Die,” she mopes over the theatrical belting it requires: “I’m gonna get made fun of by the internet when I do it.”
