“Amy”, which won the Oscar for best documentary, recalls the life of troubled singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse. Blessed with a voice that recalled of Billy Holiday and a gifted writer, Amy Winehouse was “a once in two generational musical talent.” Sadly, that talent was not matched by a talent for a living, which ultimately led to a death by overdose n 2011. This “loving but honest portrayal” celebrates her talents but looks askance at the burden of celebrity.
