This was great background and analysis of Amy Winehouse's short rollercoaster life. People close to Amy gave their insight into her highs and lows, trials and tribulations. This is my favorite video about her. It is a high quality presentation and well rounded biography.

This video is also available on DVD if you want to buy it instead of viewing it on Amazon Video

Another great video is Amy Winehouse Final Goodbye, which is free for Amazon Prime members

Don't bother with these:
- Amy Winehouse X-posed Interview(s). This one is pure junk, and audio only.

- Amy Winehouse Revving @ 4500 rpms. A boring slide show narration.

- Amy Winehouse Fallen Star. It is a bad couch interview with an actress portraying Amy.

This is not a documentary that concentrates on the sensational or shallow although there are bits of this. What it does is mostly put Winehouse's music in context almost as if it were a lecture about musicianship at a school of the musical arts. The DVD is mostly commentaries by music critics and teachers about Winehouse's musical language which draws on but does not copy history. They seem to assert that Winehouse is paying homage to, commenting on and expressing and furthering her own take on jazz, blues and rhythm and blues almost as a fine artist would put forth formal expressions but with a great deal of very real and soulful artistry.

It is excellent in that it puts Winehouse in the context she deserves to be seen in and that is as a musically very savvy, learned and talented presence. Winehouse is no Aguilera, Carey, Dion or Houston, none of whom write or play instruments as does Winehouse and all of whom over sing songs as if it is their mission in life. Looked at musically, the difference is a gap oceans wide. Winehouse is not a graduate of the American Idol school of singing which has never produced one noteworthy singer in the sense of informed artistry.

We're talking about 7th chords here and not Aguilera's bosom. Winehouse is entirely deserving of this look at a unique and talented artist from a point of view of music history. Millions around the world are moved by the songs by the four women mentioned above but it sure as hell isn't because of artistry or musicianship but because of overly sentimental blows on the head with 80 notes to the bar done in a manner that serves the ego and not the song; in this sense, the music is almost an afterthought, a vehicle to convey fame and showboating. With Winehouse, the music is very much front and center and this DVD does an excellent job of showing why, with clips of vintage music and Winehouse's own performances.
