About the Movie
From BAFTA Award-winning director Asif Kapadia (SENNA), AMY tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archival footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can. A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world’s attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense – she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyze her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and virtuosity resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of the modern era. But her massive success resulted in relentless and invasive media attention, which coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle, saw her life tragically begin to unravel, resulting in her untimely death in July 2011 at the age of 27.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's Amy's words, her music, her voicemails, her home videos, her friends, her family, her tormentors, and her timeless incandescence. Look, listen and weep.
Fresh: "Amy" is a film about the waste of a great talent, and you dread the inevitable ending.
Fresh: "Amy" doesn't depart from the standard behind-the-music template, but it does deepen the format immeasurably, through the intimacy of its archival materials and the focus of its approach.
Fresh: A loving but honest portrayal of a doomed talent.
Thought she was jus another...
...dime a dozen pop singer. Like so many others out there right now.
I was wrong! She was a gift!
Miss ya miss beehive!;))
HANDS DOWN - THEE BEST MOVIE of the Summer
AMY ..This movie, Whoa, from start to finish it's truly an incredible one to watch. The director and their crew FOR SURE did a Fantastic job on this one, from the music to the edits of the clips, to the way they put it all together ..It will FOR SURE keep your eyes glued to the screen.
A MUST BUY movie, in my opinion, for sure worth it.
I just watched this documentary on the theatres and it is incredible. The cool thing about it is that it only shows her. In other documentaries I’ve seen, the person talking usually appears on the screen, but in “Amy” it is all voice over. While the person is talking, you watch footage of her. Another part that really touches the audience is that sometimes when her music is playing, if it has to do to the theme talked about they show the lyrics on the screen so that you can really feel the meaning of the song.
