A new extended trailer for the Amy Winehouse documentary was released earlier this week, showing clips of Amy with her friends and ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil. Amy’s family have already spoken out against the film calling it misleading, and her ex Reg Traviss wrote a vehement article for the telegraph describing the doc as an orchestrated spin that didn’t capture her true character.
“Amy was a real person, and what the documentary makers have done – like so many others before them – is effectively attack her. They claimed to have made a serious, unbiased documentary that presents an honest depiction of Amy. Instead, they have taken her name and exploited her talent for their own ends, without taking the responsibility of reflecting the true person that she was.” –Reg Travis via Telegraph
“Amy” premiered at Cannes this week and will be released in theaters on Friday, July 3rd.
