****(*)Kevin Harley, Total Film, 29/06/2015

Asif Kapadia’s stunning docu-collage maps out the crushing inevitability of Amy Winehouse’s fate with depth and clarity – and is all the more moving for it.

****(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express, 05/07/2015

Asif Kapadia’s controversial Amy Winehouse documentary eschews sensation and talking heads in favour of heartbreaking footage and difficult questions.
