Compelling documentary; sad and revealing. It presents a fairly balanced view of her life (and untimely death) and doesn't sensationalise her various misfortunes. Worth a look for fans and non-fans alike.

As a child of the 80s, I'm a fan of music from the 70's and the 90s. I mention that to say I was never a fan of Ms Houston's, but have always been fascinated with her as a person and a star, and to that ends the film served me well. The film focused on her life using family videos and news footage and, like my friends and me, shied away from her performances. (Two notable exceptions were her singing of America's National Anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl and a stirring rendition of 'I Will Always Love You' as the first performer in a post-apartheid South Africa.) The film is occasionally too long, trying to connect dots between her past and her drug problems -- a link I sometimes found tenuous -- but overall the movie did what it was meant to: offer us a behind the scenes look at a beautiful and talented young woman and the long, beguiling train wreck she engineered.

On the whole a very interesting documentary about the life and death of Whitney Houston. It focuses on her life more than it does career, but I'm sure there will be many alternative documentaries that focus on her career too. I would have liked to have had a bit more interviews with Whitney herself. More

> _I'm older. I'm matured. But that doesn't mean, that has nothing to do with me feeling old. I'm older, I'm matured, I'm maturated now, and looking forward to the years to come, you know, good years._

More emotional than I expected

I wasn't a huge fan of Nick Broomfield and Rudi Dolezal's Whitney: Can I Be Me (2017). The film was built on the foundation of never-before-seen backstage footage from Houston's World Tour 1999, but I felt the narrative was poorly constructed, jumping from her divorce More
