This doc about Amy Winehouse is somewhat unique: although numerous friends, family and colleagues are interviewed, they aren’t shown talking. All of the footage is made up of archival photos and video from her life and career – some of it surprisingly personal. It traces the incredible talent from her teenage years, featuring performance clips that reveal her unique and astounding ability. There’s early insight into her personal demons and the pressures of fame that turned her story into a tragedy of press harassment, need for love and substance abuse (on-screen song lyrics reveal even more). No flashy editing or fancy graphics. Just a self-told story. Fans will be mesmerized by the intimate glimpses into this sensitive, fragile and amazingly gifted singer.

 

4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)
