I think the movie is primarily, though not exclusively, for fans. The documentary does exactly what you would expect - it rehashes the information that most people who own a television set or read a newspaper already know. In short we are told that she was very talented, had a lot of success followed by (and in conjunction with) considerable difficulties, and died unexpectedly. The film is interspersed throughout with her marriage, drugs, and the minutia of her life that is common knowledge by now. I did not have any revelations that I did not have prior. At best, on a rare occasion, an assumption or two I had was confirmed. Some may argue that the documentary was not intended to present us with additional intriguing information that we did not already know, and that it was more about being a tribute - and this is fine. Irregardless, I would suggest that if you have not had your head in the sand for the last few decades you can miss this one without too much worry. I would not say the film is bad per se, but I did not think it brought anything substantial from outside we already knew. It is, however, a perfectly fine nostalgic film that hard core Whitney fans will likely not want to miss.

Whitney is a documentary about the beautiful and immensely talented Whitney Houston. I don't think I've seen a documentary yet that I thought was bad. The goal of a documentary is to bring forth information about a person, place, time, or otherwise that you may not have known. That was definitely achieved in this documentary however speculative some of the things may have been.
I knew the inevitable ending of this documentary yet I still wasn't prepared. In fact, her death was made even more gut-wrenching after watching an hour of her tremendous ascendancy and another 50 minutes of her downward spiral. And this documentary was especially impactful to me because Whitney Houston was a staple in my house as a kid; it was her, Prince and Michael Jackson, then a little later it was George Michael... now all four are gone.
Watching this documentary you will be swelled with emotions as you listen to her amazing pipes as she was tearing up the charts in the 80's. Her voice brings chills and goosebumps it's so incomparable. And from that emotional high you really get dragged down to a supreme low as she is reduced to attempting a comeback tour in the 2000's and her voice is not even a fragment of what it once was; and there would be no comeback, only a passing away. We couldn't even witness a one last hurrah from this singing legend and that was probably the saddest thing of all.
I don't even know if I could recommend this documentary because it weighs so heavily upon the heart. You absolutely have to emotionally prepare yourself for this. If you think you can brave this documentary then by all means watch it. I only wish that her life ended differently.
I was not disappointed. An in depth look at Whitney's life through the people who knew her best. Beautifully put together.
