AMY (Winehouse) Documentary Trailer
I found out about this upcoming doc on Amy Winehouse just yesterday and I have to say it felt like eerie prescience. Back to Black is never far from my mind and it was about a week ago that I pulled it of the shelf for the first time since probably November. I've always loved this record and as time has passed that love has matured in a way that - just the morning before my wife tagged me in a revelatory post on this film's existence - felt emotionally epic. Watching this today I have to say that the feeling deepens once again. If the film is even half as sophisticated and effective as the restraint and technique used to cut this promotional short is, well, we'll have a winner.
Directed by Asif Kapadia, produced by James Gay-Reese. Can't wait.
