Why 'Amy' Is One of the Best Music Documentaries Ever





The upcoming Amy Winehouse documentary Amy is one of the best music docs Village Voice film critic Stephanie Zacharek has ever seen, and she explains why to Voice film editor Alan Scherstuhl and LA Weekly film critic Amy Nicholson this week.

Also this week: The confusing (yet really, really enjoyable) explanations for Arnold Schwarzenegger's age fluctuations in Terminator Genisys.

Plus: Amy raves about the Channing Tatum dance vehicle Magic Mike XXL, "a topless, sticky­wet movie where almost no one is having sex."

Finally, we give a hearty endorsement for the film noir classic The Third Man, which gets its first major restoration — and is back in theaters.
