Everybody's Everything is a 2019 documentary film about the life of Gustav Elijah Åhr, the American rapper, singer, and songwriter known professionally as Lil Peep. The film was directed by Sebastian Jones and Ramez Silyan, produced by Benjamin Soley and executive produced by Terrence Malick, Liza Womack and Sarah Stennett. It chronicles the life of Lil Peep from his childhood in Long Beach, NY through his meteoric rise in the underground scene and music industry, up to his death on November 15, 2017 at the age of 21. The film takes its title from one of Lil Peep's Instagram posts, which appeared the day before his death. I just wanna be everybody's everything," he wrote. The documentary is described as a "humanistic portrait that seeks to understand an artist who attempted to be all things to all people."
I got to go to the new Lumiere Music Hall on Wednesday night (formerly owned by Laemmle). After some Netflix ads and enticing previews, the Lil Peep documentary was showing. I have to admit, I knew NOTHING about him, so everything was a surprise. He had the same gumption and style as Billie Eilish even though he was a rapper.
I just wana be everybody's everything I want too much from people but then I don't want anything from them at the same time u feel me I don't let people help me but I need help but not when I have my pills but that's temporary one day maybe I won't die young and I'll be happy?
The film is generous in its inclusion of a broad spectrum of those who loved Lil Peep. It delights in Lil Peep's astonishment when, in 2017, he sells out performances in Moscow, Berlin, and elsewhere, even as friends note the obvious toll intense pressure takes on a sensitive Lil Peep. In part, as Lil Peep writes, this stems from wanting to be, as the documentary's title says, "Everybody's everything," written one day before his last. Watching Lil Peep deliver his inimitable punk, emo and trap, his "U Said," "Crybaby," "Witchblade," his tattoos underlining his individuality, the tragedy hits home, memorialized beautifully, underlining our loss. 041b061a72
