Away from the towering beehive and the applied-on-the-bus eyeliner, away from the tabloid 'trainwreck' headlines and even from the huge talent, who was Amy Winehouse? The answer in Asif Kapadia's amazing new doc (watch even if you're not a fan) is a funny, blunt, vulnerable woman. Kapadia (who also directed 'Senna') sifted through thousands of hours of footage and interviewed her friends and musical collaborators to make ‘Amy’. 'The biggest job for me was to earn the trust of everyone,' he says. 'But I think they realised quite quickly that we wanted to find the real girl.' Here Kapadia picks the five images - mostly taken by Amy Winehouse's friends and family - that touched him.
