Reviews:
"AMY remains grounded in the late singer’s humanity....AMY never feels exploitative; the singer’s addictions were another facet of deeper personal issues that went inadequately addressed." - 07/02/2015 A.V. Club


"[I]t is the achievement of AMY, Asif Kapadia's accomplished, quietly devastating documentary, that it makes the story of this troubled and troubling individual surprisingly one of a kind by allowing us to, in a sense, live her life along with her." - 07/02/2015 Los Angeles Times


"Winehouse is revealed to be a natural-born entertainer with a raw sound and street style that borrowed from the past -- a sultry Sarah Vaughan at the intersection of bee-hived Ronnie Spector and fragile Edith Piaf -- while being her own person and true to herself as an artist." - 07/03/2015 RogerEbert.com


4 stars out of 5 -- "A vibrant, haunting documentary, and a poignant tribute to a free spirit." - 06/26/2015 Empire


4 stars out of 5 -- "Kapadia dodges the talking heads of standard retro-docs and taps archive footage -- a huge wodge of it -- for immersive, intimate and illuminating ends." - 06/29/2015 Total Film


"[A] shattering biographical portrait of the British singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse..." - 07/03/2015 New York Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "What makes Asif Kapadia's documentary a devastating don’t-miss dazzler -- like the lady herself -- is the way he lays out her story without editorializing." - 07/07/2015 Rolling Stone


"Underscoring all the sadness is the unforgettable soundtrack left us by Winehouse, whose voice was often compared to that of jazz greats Dinah Washington and Billie Holiday." - 07/07/2015 Chicago Sun-Times


"AMY, Asif Kapadia’s sensitive, superbly constructed, ultimately shattering documentary about Winehouse’s life and career, doesn’t traffic in the cliches of demons and trainwrecks." - 07/10/2015 Washington Post
