This Amy Winehouse Documentary Trailer Is Gut-Wrenching
Amy Winehouse's 2011 death is a wound that's still not entirely healed, and the scab looks likely to be ripped off with the upcoming documentary Amy.
In the just-released trailer, we hear the late singer droning through 2007 hit "Back to Black" as early video clips fade in and out over a vintage interview. Amy can be heard talking about why she got into music and from where her passion stems.
But the most haunting part comes when the interviewer asks, "How big do you think you're going to be?" She responds, "I don't. I don't think I'm going to be at all famous. I don't think I could handle it. I would go mad, you know what I mean? I would go mad." The clips of a fresh-looking, smiling Amy give way to shots of the star being chased by paparazzi.
Some posthumous documentaries can be corny, lame or pointless but Amy looks like it's going to delve deeper into the star's psyche and give insight to what created her demise. Lots of people blame husband Blake Fielder-Civil, but was it actually her fame? We're looking forward to unraveling some still-unanswered questions.
Amy will hit U.S. theaters in July, which will coincide with the four-year anniversary of Winehouse's death.
