Movie Review: Daisy Jones and The Six

Written by Reananda Hidayat Permono Completed Master of Science - MS, Petroleum Geology from Curtin University, Perth, Australia.

Adapted from Taylor Jenkins Reid’s 2019 novel with the same name, Daisy Jones and The Six tells the story of the band Fleetwood Mac.

It uses personal dynamics with the ‘70s band to explain why it’s burned out instead of fading away.

They were big, but why did they break up so quickly? The series has a gorgeous cast of talents, including Riley Keough (Daisy Jones) and Sam Claflin (Billy Dunne).

Besides, it offers a rich source and excellent period detail. However, the show has a serious problem: it sags when it needs to build momentum.

Hence, it looks to repeat itself, feeling more like a cover of a cover.

The first two episodes show an excellent presentation from the cast to bring the show to some later rough conflicts.

Daisy is a documentary created two decades after The Six performed their final show.

Everyone came for interviews to explain The Six’s rise and fall; it was the first meeting since they separated.

So the drama plays out as a flashback, then Daisy Jones and The Six reveal how the band got buried.

Besides Keough and Claflin, the show has other stars like Suki Waterhouse (keyboardist Karen Sirko), Camila Morrone,

Will Harrison (guitarist Graham), Sebastian Chacon (drummer Warren), and Josh Whitehouse (rhythm guitarist Eddie).
