Amy is a documentary much too crammed with found-footage and not enough with insight. Nothing in this film sheds any light on why Amy Winehouse was special, and spent more time dwelling on “bad” influences like her father and her husband thanAmy is a documentary much too crammed with found-footage and not enough with insight. Nothing in this film sheds any light on why Amy Winehouse was special, and spent more time dwelling on “bad” influences like her father and her husband than on her singing. It was interesting to see Winehouse mature as an artist, but that seemed almost accidental, and the point appeared to simply be that she lead a short chaotic life. Unfortunately I knew that already.

A lot has been written about the no talking heads structure which is actually not accurate. The heads are talking but we don't see them. This all points to one thing--AMY is actually a very standard bio doc about a very talented woman that none of us really knew. The early scenes of her talent, wonderful humor, and true wit, underscore the tragedy and sadness of it all. I actually think the film would be better if it simply ended as her alcohol and drug use started. Then we would see the young woman so ready to find herself and we would only question what became of her. But back to AMY. Really just a standard film with some nice moments. The film also lacks a central focus or point, so it just becomes a lot of stuff about Amy. Expand

Not good as I expected but finally very honest and sad documentary about amazing singer Amy Winehouse. Drugs like a love, love like a drugs, depression, strong personality and weak soul. Amy deserves for MARLEY's quality biopic. What a ****Not good as I expected but finally very honest and sad documentary about amazing singer Amy Winehouse. Drugs like a love, love like a drugs, depression, strong personality and weak soul. Amy deserves for MARLEY's quality biopic. What a **** waste of one-for-a-decade talent... Expand

Amy is pretty ok. Damn, this has to be 150 characters for me to post it. I'm just posting this to get back at a friend Amy who said I'm mild. If I'm honest I haven't even seen this movie.
