Movie Review: Amy

Amy Winehouse died on July 23, 2011 of accidental alcohol poisoning. At that point in her life, she was best recognized for her dramatic winged eyeliner, beehive hairstyle,and frighteningly skinny frame. “Amy,” director Asif Kapadia’s stunning documentary about the late star, opens with grainy footage of a very different Amy Winehouse: a young teenager with flushed, puffy cheeks, bright eyes, and huge smile, singing Happy Birthday to one of her best friends. The second we hear that mesmerizing voice, every audience member is a goner, bound to the captivating, heartbreaking story that will unfold over the next two hours.
