Working Through Streaming Docs
The last couple days we watched the documentary about Amy Winehouse, Amy (2015).
I think it was because we saw another documentary on Amy Winehouse in the last year that wasn't very well put together but told the same story, point by point, that this movie felt more awkward than touching. Her story is a sad story of substance abuse, eating disorder, and not handling success very well and it does hit the right sad note at the moment of her death in the film. I kind of liked her music but not enough to buy an album and in the last year or so it seems all the young singers are channeling her style of singing. Years later her jazz sound in pop music feels like she was the first to catch on doing that and now it is more of radio fixture. This wasn't the best documentary watched lately, although the soundtrack was nice.
