Amy (2015), Asif Kapadia ★★★★

There is so much of popular culture that just goes over my head. This probably has something to do with not owning a smart phone and watching only two tv channels: Turner Classic Movies and local weather on the 8s (The Weather Channel). I did not have a clue with respect to Amy Winehouse. The story is so captivating, and her talent so apparent, I was glued and am glad I made a special trip and caught this on the big screen. One of Ebert.com’s reviewers, Susan Wloszczyna, who I may or may not take recommendations from her star ratings, gave it 4 (out of 4) stars, so off I went, across town – $8.50 for a senior ticket. Well worth the drive, ticket price. The performances shown depict a seasoned professional practicing her art.
