Your Quick & Simple Reveiew: “Whitney”

The documentary that looks at the life and career of singer Whitney Houston. From her rise to fame and all the tabloid headlines, rare performances and interviews with the people who knew her best.

Growing up in the 80’s, you could not escape the music of Whitney.  Everywhere you turned her music was on.  MTV, VH1 and pretty much every single radio station.  It was always a 24 hour Whitneython.  Now, thru this film we get a really good look at, not only the music, but the people around her and who had helped her rise to fame as well as the ones that aided in her fall from glory.

To say I learned a few things from this documentary is an understatement, because I actually learned a whole lot.  One thing being, as we have seen with many celebrities, the grass is not always greener on the other side.  But even as the shine of her star starts to diminish, I liked how director, Kevin Macdonald constantly reminded us of amazing and beautiful she was.  I think her fans, and just music fans in general, will find this a very interesting look behind her music, making, Whitney…  A Must See Movie.
