Asif Kapadia’s brilliant looking new documentary Amy looks at the short life of the talented Amy Winehouse.
Amy Winehouse was an incredibly talented singer-songwriter. Her successful but short life is the subject of another stunning documentary called Amy from director Asif Kapadia, whose previous film Senna was one of my favourites from 2012.
Using the same technique as in Senna, Kapadia presents archival footage, clips and interviews to create a heartbreaking portrait in Amy’s own words of a gifted artist whose brief time in the spotlight proved just as destructive as what eventually ended her life in 2011, aged just 27.
From the look of this brilliant trailer that was assembled for this year’s Cannes film festival, Amy will be an emotional journey.Tags: Amy Winehouse, asif kapadia, documentary, real life story
