    Sharply edited with voice-over filling the pause of music between Nina's indelible notes. 77/100 - Very Good (3.5)

  5. smndvdcl's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

    Whilst the documentary style is fairly rote, the story of Nina Simone is a deeply profound one.

  6. samba direito's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

  7. Terry_Moby's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

    3.5 Informative and depressing in equal parts. Watching the troubled and self-destructive life of such a talented woman is no easy viewing experience.

  10. nematomaranka's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

  13. bryanvmh's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

    Gives a little too much of a voice to Nina's abusive husband (even for the purposes of re-framing her "gone crazy" narrative through a directly patriarchal lens) but anything where Nina is on the screen for this long is going to be crazy interesting to watch.

  14. Dizzy Moods's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

    Honestly movies need to stay away from Nina & her music

  15. Blue Roses's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

  16. teresa romã's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

  17. jooley's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

    Not immensely consequential, but informative, well made and very wise to let the music do most of the talking.

  18. A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

    As a documentary, it's not exactly remarkable, following the basic biography formula of highly praising the artist while showing all their dirty laundry. But, Nina Simone's dramatic story and unmatched artistry ensure that this film, while average, is never dull. Fans of Simone will enjoy the performance footage and information provided, while the newcomers will find much to appreciate as well.

  19. Henrique Amud's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

    Very powerful and very complicated. Liz Garbus did an outstanding job gathering some of the missing pieces for the still incomplete encyclopedia into Miss Simone's mind, life and art.

  20. Cid Medeiros's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

    Powerful narrative on the rise and shocking fall of an exceptional human being. As an artist gifted both as a performer and as a channel to human inner existence. As a black american citizen, brave enough to fight her way up to recognition and honest enough to put all her energy to expose all the ugliness, including hers, of a race divided country.

  21. Mar J's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

  22. ntsha's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

  23. -REM-'s rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

  24. Àlex Frias Haro's rating of the film What Happened, Miss Simone?

    Documental que funciona como una inagotable biopic de Nina Simone, quien por cuestiones raciales vio truncado su sueño de ser pianista clásica, para convertirse en la legendaria "sacerdotisa del soul", de inconfundible voz grave, rasposa, y profunda. Musicalmente disfrutable, y profundamente revelador, el documental es narrado y producido por su hija, la actriz Lisa Simone Kelly.
