what documentaries have you watched lately that are good enough to recommend? watched Amy on the weekend (Amy Winehouse doc) and was impressed. i knew very little of her music and my mind hasn't really been open to jazz but her story is compelling. and very sad/tragic. some real douchbag men in her life sure didn't help her case but i did suspend some of my sympathy when she was quoted as saying at a big awards gala when she was at the top 'it isn't any fun without the drugs'. complicated person and insanely talented and hard working, inspired and motivated to be great. also seemed motivated to live a hard life on the edge and seemed to really embrace being strung out. was that the symptom of her ills or actually choice she enjoyed. i think that's the question but not readily answerable.
chime in with some ideas, responses and reviews.
