Look what you made her do: The 8 takeaways from Prime Video’s Taylor Swift documentary

“Folklore” was created amid quarantine when Swift was spending most of her time watching movies and reading books “that dealt with times past.” Swift was inspired by the works of fiction she consumed to write songs “that weren’t strictly autobiographical, and instead experimented with alternative points of view,” the documentary explained.


The stories told in “Folklore” include a ghost that discovers its murderer at its funeral, a young girl with a traumatized friend, an elderly widow shunned by her community, recovering alcoholics and a love triangle between the fictional characters Betty, James and an unnamed woman,” the documentary added.
