Review: Ella Fitzgerald Just One of Those Things
Ella Fitzgerald: Just One of Those Things taught me so many things I didn’t know about the marvelous Ella Fitzgerald. I’m a lifelong fan of her music, but I didn’t know much about her personal life and struggles. This Netflix documentary fills in a lot of the details.
Amy, the documentary about the too-short life of singer Amy Winehouse, was directed by Asif Kapadia. The film was created from archival clips to tell the story of the talented but troubled Winehouse with Winehouse herself as the focus.
