Sumary of Alanis Morissette blasts documentary ‘Jagged’ as ‘salacious’:
- NEW YORK: Just hours before the HBO documentary “Jagged” was to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Tuesday, Alanis Morissette criticized the film about her life as “reductive” and “salacious.
- “Morissette participated in the film, directed by Alison Klayman, sitting for lengthy interviews.
- “”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),” wrote Morissette.
- ” Morissette didn’t specify her issues with “Jagged,” which is to premiere Nov.
- But its most sensitive material includes Morissette discussing sexual encounters when she was 15 that she calls statutory rape.
- The Washington Post earlier reported on that section of the film.
- “It took me years in therapy to even admit there had been any kind of victimization on my part,” Morissette says in the film.
- ” Canada’s age of consent has been 16 years old since 2008. A person under the age of 18 cannot consent if the sexual activity is with a person with authority over them.
