  • 5 stars "I watched it twice and have been recommending it. Even if you're not a fan of her music, you'll be engrossed with the true story of her life."
  • 5 stars "Best movie I've seen this year! I cried in more than one place. The director Asif Kapadia, pastes together existing footage, much on hand-held camera, to create a patchwork of Amy's life. The story is told in chronological order and knowing the ending as most of us surely do, only adds to the poignancy. And there are moments that are uneasy to watch. For instance there are scenes when she is hounded and chased by paperazi; yet there I was in my seat, rubber-necking, watching intimate details of her life as it fell apart. Other uneasy moments include comedians telling cruel jokes when Amy went through low periods in her life. There is lots of Amy's music in the film. And it is beautiful. In conclusion it is a movie that plucks at your heartstrings, and you can't help but feel an abundance of affection for Winehouse by the time the titles roll."
  • 5 stars "Absolute best bio-documentary I've ever seen. The original footage, which is throughout is amazing. A tragic conclusion to a truly talented life. Could Amy's life have been saved ? Who's to blame ?"
