Penetrating and brutally sad, director Asif Kapadia's documentary on singer Amy Winehouse is built around amazingly intimate archival footage. The early scenes are captivating—Winehouse was a prodigy-level jazz vocalist and a natural-born songwriter. The film's second half charts her death spiral of drugs, booze and fame. The doc presents everything at an artistic remove, with implicit critiques of media and society and so on. But it still feels awful. We watched Winehouse die once. Do we really need to watch again, in close up?
