This unofficial biography of the talented but troubled Amy Winehouse tracks the sultry songstress from the ferocious debut that inspired comparisons to Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington, to the fall from grace that became routine tabloid fodder. REVVING @ 4500 RPMS attempts to find a lost soul who's still struggling to find herself.
In this documentary, you will find out who Amy Winehouse truly is and was, and why she is still searching for herself. In 2003, Amy Winehouse debuted her first album, "Frank." When she first burst onto the scene, she was considered to be as soulful as the sultry sisters of yesteryear, such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughn and Dina Washington. In 2008, that is no longer the case. Besides her controversial Grammy wins, she has been shunned by the industry, critics and artists by the likes of Natalie Cole and many others. This situation has arisen because of the young singer's public display of hard alcohol and drug use. Amy Winehouse is a good girl gone train wreck with the help of husband Blake Fielder-Civil, whom with no doubt helped create this monster. Amy Winehouse: this is a true cracked case scenario.
