DOCUMENTARY SPECIAL: This new Netflix documentary special is impressively personal, including not only very early home videos and peeks at her teenage diaries, but frank discussion of her eating disorder problems and personal insecurities. “I’m only here because I work hard and I’m nice to people.” And rather than limit the content to onstage and backstage footage, which is on view enough to attest to both her popularity and talent, Miss Americana includes, and
