winehouse: asif kapadia on the life of an icon

As always was the case for Winehouse herself, Amy is driven by the music. In the documentary film that tells her life story, her most famous songs (that we think we know) are given a discerning, new definition. Foreshadowings of a woman wise beyond her years; an icon and identity, tarnished by her own rapacious audience. We are faced with the blatant truth. A life stolen far too soon; blood still fresh on our hands.
