When the documentary Whitney was released in 1997, it was widely heralded as a landmark achievement for a female rock star. But the film is far from an objective account of the life of Whitney Houston, whose life is full of contradictions. In the film, the Houston family, which includes her parents, mother, and father, proclaims that Whitney was born in Texas, raised in California, and then moved to Houston, where she was raised by her father, who died when Whitney was a teenager. When asked why they didn't make more of the Houston family's activities, a spokesperson for the family says, "We wanted to let the audience know that Whitney is a product of her parents' decisions, not of her own." Whitney herself, when asked about the interview, said that she didn't want the film to focus on her, but on the family. "They made a choice, and that's how it was," she said. "I don't want to go into details, but I was a product of my parents' decisions." The documentary does cover the many facets of Whitney's life, but the film is not without flaws. For example, the Houston family's constant references to the music of Whitney Houston are not the best way to illustrate the subject matter of the documentary. The family is not exactly known for their musical talents, and, while it is true that Whitney Houston is a virtuoso pianist, the documentary only shows snippets of her work and never really gets into the specifics of her music. The family's reaction to Whitney's death was also poorly conveyed. The family was never asked to discuss the reasons for Whitney's death, and they never give an explanation for her actions. The family never denies that she had bipolar disorder or that she had a drug problem, but the documentary never explains why she killed herself. What the family really wants to focus on is the music, and the family doesn't really have anything else to say about Whitney. The documentary does cover many aspects of Whitney's life, but they don't cover the personal problems that Whitney had to deal with, or the many other people who knew her. The family's response to Whitney's death was simply not fair to Whitney. What I think the Houston family should have done was tell the truth about Whitney's drug problems, and not the family's own lie. The Houston family should have been more forthcoming about Whitney's drug problems, and they should have not given the film's producers a platform to promote their own lie about Whitney's death. The Houston family never apologized for their lie. Instead, they tried to twist the truth to make it look like

I was really looking forward to this film, having loved everything of the Jimi Hendrix legend, particularly the 'American Graffiti' albums. But after the first ten minutes I just couldn't get over the fact that it was filmed in black and white. I thought I'd lost the plot, but then I remembered that the film was made in the 70's and so I didn't expect it to be so well made, but I was wrong. The documentary is really good, even though I was always aware that the images were in black and white. I thought it was really cool that the film makers were able to film the music in black and white, it helped the film feel like a documentary. I did find that the colour was used to its fullest extent, especially in the early part of the film, which is probably what drew me in the first place. The film really focuses on the Jimi Hendrix story, from his birth to his death, and from the recordings of his music to the performances. The footage is all pretty good, with great interviews with his family, music fans, band members and other people who knew him. It is very moving and it is very well done. I thought the performances were also really good, with Jimi playing many of the songs from the 'American Graffiti' album and the films story about his life. There were some great performances by many of the musicians who played for Hendrix. But in the end I felt that the film did lose the plot in the second half, but that really wasn't a problem because the film did a great job overall. There are many more interviews and other footage in the DVD. The film is a bit like a documentary on the music, but it really doesn't try to be anything else, but it still is a great documentary and I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to learn more about Jimi Hendrix.
