Showtime in the US has acquired worldwide rights to a forthcoming documentary about Irish singer-songwriter Sinéad O’Connor directed by Kathryn Ferguson. Nothing Compares charts O’Connor’s rise to worldwide fame and examines how she used her voice at the height of her stardom before her iconoclastic personality led to her exile from the pop mainstream.
If you know Sinéad O’Connor’s name it’s likely two images come to mind: a buzzed head in a black turtleneck, a ripped-up photograph of Pope John Paul II. Kathryn Ferguson’s new documentary is an excellent primer on the captivating Irish singer’s brief moment of skyrocketing fame and politically motivated plummet. Nothing Compares doesn’t necessarily provide shocking information for those already familiar, but it is a well-executed, dedicated look at a fascinating, outspoken voice.

Nothing Compares, Kathryn Ferguson's documentary about the life and career of lionized artist Sinéad O'Connor, premiered at the virtual Sundance Film Festival on Friday, chronicling everything from the Irish singer-songwriter's abusive childhood to her infamous 1992 Saturday Night Live performance when she tore up a photo of the Pope. An essential track, however, is notably absent.
Album covers used to be mythically important — they could etch the image of a musician forever in your mind’s eye. In “Nothing Compares,” Kathryn Ferguson’s incisive and poignant documentary about the life and career of Sinéad O’Connor, we see the image that was chosen in 1987 for the cover of O’Connor’s first album, “The Lion and the Cobra,” made when she was 20 years old and pregnant: an extraordinary photograph of Sinéad in mid-scream. Talk about mythology! That’s how the album was released in Europe, but for us benighted souls in America, the image was deemed to edgy. It...
