Nothing Compares

Belfast-born filmmaker Kathryn Ferguson crafts an absorbing, searing documentary about outspoken musician Sinéad O'Connor, acting as something of a corrective to the backlash she previously faced. Predominantly using archival footage, the voices of friends, colleagues and peers and an interview with Sinéad, Ferguson’s film offers both context and a close-reading of an unlikely icon.
