The devil may have got her in the end, but we’ll always have that voice as consolation. “God gave me something really good,” says Whitney, without conceit. “And he didn’t give it to everybody.” Amen to that.

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.

Macdonald interviews with a keen eye and ear, probing for answers, but all of those who surrounded Whitney are implicated to some extent in her downfall.

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.

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.
