A haunting, richly contextualized documentary portrait.

Los Angeles Times

press

A potent assessment of one of the most tragic stories in pop history - one that, sadly, could have been different had Whitney had the room to be Whitney.

Variety (USA)

press

Entrancingly well-done.

Little White Lies

press

All told it's another solidly constructed doc profile whose very nature leads it to milk the inherent tragedy of a celebrity who checked out ahead of time.

Vulture

press

Two biographical documentaries in, and it still feels like we're in need of a Houston film that digs into her music first, and the hows and whys of its enduring power.

The Times (UK)

press

It's an often sad but always absorbing two hours, and [director Kevin] Macdonald balances the heartbreaking troughs with dazzling peaks.
