Bill C’s Review – 4 out of 5
Amy is the documentary about the life and (spoiler alert) death of Amy Winehouse. The film makers had access to tons of footage from friends and family which makes this much more than you’d get with just a bunch of talking heads discussing her life in retrospect.
The film gives a good view of her meteoric rise, what she was like before her drug addiction and then the sad and possibly preventable downfall. It gives a sad view of how some around her were more interested in her fame than in helping her recover.
An excellent documentary but definitely a downer.
