I can't wait for the DVD release since there isn't a cinema near me that shows it. I was very scared they wouldn't include the extra footage they couldn't include in the movie. But seems like we are getting it!

Wow that was nice of them , sure a lot of you gave them a lot of info and pics, I think also that they knew that we wanted the real story about the " real" Amy warts and all. Seems like they did it. Got to travel over 100miles to see though, just want to see it in my own with nobody giving me their judgments on it . Have seen Tyler's comment on the film he said it captures the core of Amy. Taking lots of hankies!
Also comment about Nick S and Raye, think that was why Nick felt so hurt when Amy dropped him he cared for her, but that caring, trying to keep her on the straight and narrow felt alien to her where as Raye just let her do want she wanted , unless money was involved and we all know how that turned out... She didn't need a friend she needed a protector that wasn't her employee.

Andrew Morris should be made a saint;
Juleitte, Lauren and Nick S are some of the best friends any girl would ever want to have; and
Blake, Mitch and Raye, while aren't soley to blame for her predicament, are all culpable of adding fuel to the fire. Raye and Mitch in particular "Just one more show, just one more album, just one more anything". All I could think of was Judy Garland but in the 21st century.
Also I didn't realise that she was so "in" with Mos Def. I loved what he said to her when she went to his hotel room late one night wanting to smoke crack. He said "I don't mind if you get high. But I mind that you get high".
One minor thing I think I spotted - although I could be wrong - the lyrics read "your ten men down like Roger Moore"
A fitting tribute to our legend. Special props to our forum scoring a mention in the credits!
Can't wait to watch the cut footage in DVD and listen to the very little snippet of "We're still friends"

It’s a film that makes you newly angry and sad about losing Winehouse so early – before albums three, four, five and more, before the lifetime achievement awards and glittering retrospectives, the scandalously young boyfriends and croaking Vegas residencies.
But in doing so, it forces you to recognise the sheer selfishness of that anger and sadness. As becomes shatteringly clear, the last thing we should have asked of Winehouse was more.
Nothing new, but I really liked this bit...

I saw it the other day and felt numbed by it. I followed her career from the beginning so the story is very familiar to me. But the more I think about how nobody was truly on her side, and how lonely and isolated she was by the end, the more furious I am. Is this how we treat our most gifted, sensitive artists - as mere cogs in the wheel of industry, to be tossed aside when they fail to deliver the goods?
