Everybody’s Everything

Everybody’s Everything

Creating a unique mix of punk, emo and trap, Lil Peep was set to bring a new musical genre to the mainstream when he died of a drug overdose at just 21 years old. From the streets of Los Angeles to studios in London and sold out tours in Russia, the artist born Gustav Ahr touched countless lives through his words, his sound and his very being.

Executive produced by Terrence Malick, EVERYBODY’S EVERYTHING is an intimate, humanistic portrait that seeks to understand an artist who attempted to be all things to all people. The film is currently rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Jones and Silyan fashion a postmortem that plays like his greatest hits, in which wounded wooziness somehow gives way to a warped sense of uplift.” (Rolling Stone Magazine)

“An engaging account of Peep’s life and the alt-music scene.” (NYTimes)

“…quiet ruminations on mortality and manhood land with shattering force.” (Variety)

“Lil Peep was surrounded by people always, and this is what makes him so interesting because there’s no arrogance, only raw, unique, and unabashed talent.” (Film Threat)
