"Amy" - Documentary Review

A Scripted Freelance Writer Writing Sample

In my ongoing quest to find a truly flawless documentary, I have finally found it. It's no secret that I am a huge documentary enthusiast and I rave about many that I watch...but "Amy" is going to sit at the top of my list for a long, long time. Let me first just say, that I was never a die-hard Amy Winehouse fan. Sure, I enjoyed her music and unique vocals...but I wasn't out buying her albums or tickets to her shows. I pulled off a great Amy for Halloween once, but that was more to mock her because at the time, I didn't respect her. I thought she was quite a rare talent, but a junkie throwing away her career. I have come away from watching her story with a totally different perspective and a heavy heart. As I sat in a full, stunningly quiet theatre for two hours, I have never felt as much emotion for a person or situation while watching a film as I did while watching this. The rise and fall of her young life unfolds before your very eyes...you see exactly where it happens and you can't help but feel absolute sadness. Tremendously documented, with audio and interviews from her parents, friends, managers, boyfriends...and an abundant amount of footage from her early days to her end of days. Tragic and beautifully raw...one of the most extraordinary documentaries I have ever seen. Let's just say that I was not the only one sitting in my seat sobbing as the lights came up and the credits rolled. Make this the must-see on your list this summer....it is worth every bit of hype that it's receiving right now.
