"Amy" follows the life of Amy Winehouse, from being young and having a troubled life to her fame and fortune that ultimately lead to her demise. Not only is this an emotional story to tell, but her music truly did change the lives of people around her, as well as her family, whom had neglected her. This film is uniquely made, due to the fact that the interviewees are not shown, rather heard overtop images/videos of themselves. This is a very unconventional documentary in style and tone. I loved watching this film, although it does feel it's length.
To really get everything out of this picture that you hope to, I fell that you must be a huge fan of Amy Winehouse to begin with. I really enjoyed this film, because I respect her music and most of what she stood for, the troubles aside. The people in her life respected and adored her most of the time, so once the down spiral happens, it is extremely impactful and it truly is the core of this story. Her music even affected world renowned musicians and that is what gave me chills. "Amy" is a very well-made documentary that I will only be able to watch once, but it is extremely effective.
