Rating: 8/10 -- Fantastic use of archive footage and voiceover interview to weave a tragic tale of fame, drugs and music. Full Review
The camera that lovingly captured the young singer became an instrument of torture. Full Review
Underscoring all the sadness is the unforgettable soundtrack left us by Winehouse, whose voice was often compared to that of jazz greats Dinah Washington and Billie Holiday.
AMY, Asif Kapadia’s sensitive, superbly constructed, ultimately shattering documentary about Winehouse’s life and career, doesn’t traffic in the cliches of demons and trainwrecks.
Rating: 5/5 -- An incredible study and a challenge to public complicity, what sticks most from this tender and complex portrait is its subject's gaze; Kapadia forces us into Amy's mind and keeps us there. A cinematic treat. Full Review
One Room With A View
Rating: 4/5 -- Just as Senna made a villain of track officials and Alain Prost, so Amy doesn't pull any punches in describing a preventable finale. Full Review
Winehouse, both in her public appearances and in the private films and audio recordings, is funny, sharp, brash, as crude as she is elegant. Full Review
London Review of Books
Amy presents the story of British singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse, whose 2006 album BACK TO BLACK catapulted her to widespread fame and critical acclaim. Intense media scrutiny and problems with alcohol led to a downward spiral, leading to her tragic death in 2011 at the age of 27. The film was directed by Asif Kapadia, and includes Winehouse footage and performance clips and interviews with friends, family members and collaborators.
