Directed by Asif Kapadia, “the story of Amy Winehouse in her own words, features unseen archival footage and unheard tracks.”
 

 

NPR called it “bare bones of a crash-and-burn rocker bio-pic” and described it as the “richly absorbing documentary about the short, sharp life of Amy Winehouse. Here and there Amy flirts with prurience, but prurience is hard to avoid with a young woman who, willy-nilly, lived her private life in public. And if ever there was an artist whose life and work fed one another for better and worse, it was Winehouse.”

“Yet Amy also pays warm homage to Winehouse the musician, and not just because of the astonishing voice — the throaty roar of a trained soul singer in full maturity — that poured out of that tiny body. Never a follower of fashion, Winehouse remained wide open to many musical sources. The Goth look, the lyrics that put “rehab” and “no, no, no” together couldn’t fail to win over young audiences. Amy also makes us see why she enchanted so many across generations, from jazz to garage-band fans to the Tony Bennett demographic who thrilled to the standards the two sang so beautifully together.”

“Life teaches you how to live it, if you’re lucky enough to live that long,”
