  2. bryanvmh's rating of the film The Amazing Nina Simone

    It's a bummer that people use the same anecdotes from the other 2015 Nina documentary, making this the Infamous to Liz Garbus's Capote, but this is still worthwhile and interesting to watch.

  3. mpho3's rating of the film The Amazing Nina Simone

    Lieberman's film pays homage to Simone's greatness but seems to do so at the expense of breaching touchy subjects: domestic violence perpetrated by Stroud on Simone; accusations of child abuse perpetrated by Simone and her husband by their daughter; her self-imposed exile; and the intriguing question of whether as The Detroit News' Tom Long put it, "she was driven to madness or driven by madness." 3.5 stars.
