    Just watched this flick last weekend. Really well done. She was obviously very troubled, and had a lot of issues, but man, that voice. One in a generation kinda voice.

    Smartest thing she ever did was hook up with Mark Ronson, who in turn hired the Dap Kings to play on her "Back to Black" record. Gave her that soulful sound she needed.

    Anyway, highly recommended. We all know what the ending is, but that doesn't take the sting out of it.

    I don't get the hype, what did she do put one album out and she's a legend cause she killed herself with drugs and tried to sound black and had a nostalgic song hit?

    Some people are fascinated by someone who has the world by the balls and throws it all away because of drugs, mental illness, etc.

    She was very talented.

    Tragic figure. Once in a lifetime pipes and clearly troubled beyond belief. A big waste of talent is why people care.

    Downloaded it from a torrents site last week.
    Hope to see it sometime this week.

    I'm a big fan. She was the last great Soul singer.
    What a wasted life.

    John Lennon who dies 35 years ago today was a legend. She was talented.

    I'd rather listen to The Detroit Cobras do their rock n roll soul.

    Who's calling her a legend? It's just a documentary.

    There's also that great BBC or SKY network special of her live concert -forgotten the venue. Some huge Brit rock festival.

    Her band & back-up singers were awesome.

    She didn't exactly "kill herself", but yeah, she basically did with the copious amount of drugs and alcohol she consumed.
    I also never used the word legend. She's not a legend.
    She was an incredibly talented singer and writer. I don't care if she was trying to sound black or green or yellow, girl had some pipes. And honestly, make a list of every white singer that wants to sound black....we'll be here all day.

    apples and oranges bro. I actually like Katy Perry too. Doesn't mean Amy wasn't talented. But whatever.
