Cinemascope: Amy

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2014.

Plot line: The story of Amy Winehouse in her own words, featuring unseen archival footage and unheard tracks.

I was a fan of this young woman. What a voice! I'd watched an earlier documentary on her, and was intrigued by this one. Actual footage you say? They are not kidding. I've never seen a documentary quite like this one, one that uses actual day to day footage. A sign of the times perhaps, but the effect is an intimate behind the scenes look at this talented and troubled young woman. Powerful and moving.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.
