Streaming Documentary Review | Amy: The Tragic Story of Amy Winehouse
A wonderful insight to the life of a superstar taken too soon. Amy documents the late jazz singer’s meteoric rise to fame through home videos, concerts, and personal interviews with close friends, family, and record producers. The interviews narrate the film while trying to navigate through the many struggles and issues Amy herself tried to overcome.
I gave this film a 3 out of 5 stars because of the content. The story of Amy Winehouse is one full of tragedy and sorrow. As you watch you begin to see her life unravel more and more until it is completely unbearable. Her friends and family offer little to no support to Amy which ultimately resulted in her death. The film just does such a good job of showing that, that it really makes you sad and not want to watch anymore.
