So this is the Daphne Barak documentary then? This trailer isn't really what I was expecting. The bit of Mitch talking doesn't look like this interview either (pics: http://daphnebarak.h...yWinehouse.html). And this doesn't seem to be called Saving Amy.

Didn't know this - not dying to read it either:
"As of late, television journalist Daphne Barak has been gathering material for a book on Amy’s extremely troubled life"

And I go back to... I go back to us.

A blog about Saving Amy, from Jan. 20, so nothing new, but with some nasty comments about Amy & family, and for who's interested, I posted two counter-comments, which I did under my own name, of course.

Amy Winehouse died, and she's taken a part of my soul with her. May that part be the love that I felt for her, and may the love that I still feel for her be the undying part of us both.

Sometimes I wonder if the reason "Saving Amy" hasn't aired yet is that Amy objected to it. Maybe she couldn't legally stop it, but she could threaten to never give an interview to Daphne Barak in the future if it did air.

Or maybe the media are waiting till Amy gets her comeback concerts under her belt, in order to take advantage of the publicity, or to make sure that Amy really has been "saved" before they air a documentary that makes that claim.

I don't think that would be the reason, to be honest. I don't think Amy would ever do an interview with Daphne at all.
I don't like this woman either, Crol.

Sometimes people give off bad vibes and this woman does just that. The pic of her and Amy together has a very bad feel to it. I trust her like I would a snake.

Me neither. I hope that one day Amy will write her biography, or memoirs, with photos, lyrics, letters, poems of her own choice. That I will read.
Amy Winehouse died, and she's taken a part of my soul with her. May that part be the love that I felt for her, and may the love that I still feel for her be the undying part of us both.

Can't find a hotlink to that picture.

As to the bad vibes: as we're rooting for Amy as she's soon doing her first official public performance in a very long time, we may assume that Amy's own vibes will once again be so electrifying that all misconceptions, misrepresentations and falsifications of her will instantly lose the power that they've gained while she was vulnerable and weak. Music is a strong force, much like magic, and I'm sure that Amy remembers how to wield its power, more so as she's much stronger now, probably stronger than ever. So, power to Amy! (I almost said May the force be with her, but that seems a little too corny, even for me.;-))

I just hope all these crappy docs make it to the internet.

Do you guys know if there are any other Amy docs that can be downloaded somewhere? Specially that Girl Done Good dvd that came out a while ago.

Grown-up demons in little Amy

When Daphne Barak filmed Amy Winehouse for a documentary last month, she kept a diary. It reveals the singer as an affection-craving child who has switched from drugs to drink and who can turn nasty in a flash. No wonder her father says he can no longer cope

I am standing by the pool wondering when Amy Winehouse is going to emerge from her villa. Then, suddenly, a small figure jumps on me, clinging and showering me with kisses as if I am her oldest, dearest friend.
It’s Amy, in a bikini top and tight shorts. I notice a huge bruise on one of her legs.This is not the first time we’ve met; I’m here in St Lucia with a television crew to complete a documentary we are making about Amy and her family — the working title is Saving Amy.
We’ve been given a beach villa in a row of four that are patrolled day and night by security. Amy has one, her father Mitch and a couple of his friends have another, and the third is a recording studio where Amy is doing work for her new album and a concert she is about to give on the island as part of the St Lucia festival.
After kissing my producer, she decides to throw a welcome dinner for us. She seems very excited, rushing back to her villa, then popping straight back to count how many of us there are. And she talks in salivating detail about all the delicious food we’ll be having.
In the evening Mitch leads us to the restaurant. Amy — dressed in a mini-mini orange dress — is already there, looking anxious. She hugs me and introduces me to “my close friend Wiki”.
It turns out that Wiki, who lives in St Lucia, has just returned from the funerals of two people she knew who were recently killed in an accident. “But Amy asked me to come. I couldn’t say no to her.”
Amy whispers to me: “That’s when you know that somebody is your friend. She’s my close friend. ” Amy has known Wiki for all of two weeks.
Her other new friends arrive: an Italian couple and their daughter, aged about seven, and one of her girlfriends. Immediately, Amy leaves the table, chasing them and teaching them how to dance. She may be 25, but her physique is so slight that you could easily mistake her for one of three little girls. There are whoops of laughter as they play for the next two hours; it’s obvious that Amy feels much more at home with these girls than she does with the grown-ups.
Later she turns her attention to me, covering my dress with a series of napkins. Everyone is staring. She keeps saying: “Daphne, I want to take good care of you.”
When the food arrives she insists on serving us. Everyone, she announces, has to start with rice on their plate. As she starts dishing it out, I notice her hands are shaking so badly that she can barely hold a plate.
Because she is busy feeding us, no one seems to notice that she isn’t eating; she is just pushing the food around her plate. I wonder, not for the last time, if she has truly overcome her anorexia.

It's a difficult situation for Amy and Mitch (and her brother and mother, of course), exhausting for all who care for her; she has to calm down, start eating more, and drink less, or rather, no alcohol. She should be coached through the following period until she's made progress on these three points.

Ditto.


That video isn't working very well for me, is "which is so much fun" the last thing they say or is the video just blocking?

In the video when Amy hugs daphen, she doesnt seem like shes doing it in this crazy child longing for attention way, she simply kisses her dad hugs daphen and says hello...she doesnt wrap herself around her like a child would...
