Amy

Amy ★★★★

Watching Amy was long-overdue for me considering how much I like her, but I'm so glad I eventually got around to it.

This is a superbly riveting and emotional documentary that captures Amy Winehouse's struggles with painful honesty. She's one of my favourite artists (as well as one of the best artists of all time in my opinion), and watching just how poorly she was treated was truly depressing.

It's also a competently made documentary. Using just the audio from interviews instead of breaking up the archive footage helped keep the focus solely on Amy, and kept the pacing sharp. The 2 hours flew by, and this film has left me with a lot to think about.
