With Mystify: Michael Hutchence arriving in cinemas this week, a new documentary based on the life and career of one of the greatest ever rock musician, Michael Hutchence of band Inxs, we thought we’d take a look back at six of the very best music documentaries to have ever graced the silver screen.
Amy: Dir. Asif Kapadia (2015)
One of the more recent features on our list is Asif Kapadia’s brilliant 2015 documentary Amy. Kapadia was riding high on the success of his 2011 BAFTA winner Senna and the world waited with huge anticipation to see what subject he tackled next. Amy documents the rise to fame and the remarkable career of one of the greatest young female artists of her generation. Absorbing, impactful and ultimately heart-breaking, Amy is a masterpiece in terms of filmmaking too, and one of the best music documentaries ever seen on the screen.
