Watch: Asif Kapadia Narrates a Moving Scene from 'Amy'

Asif Kapadia’s "Amy" is an autopsy of a fallen star’s death-spiral, and of the myth of the celebrity trainwreck. Full of texture and truth, this extraordinary music documentary details how we were all complicit in Winehouse’s demise at 27.

You leave the movie pissed off and regretful and angry at the world, and yourself.
