Meine Review des Amy WInehouse Films von Asif Kapadia wurde heute in der Jüdischen Allgemeinen veröffentlicht.

My Review of the Amy Film about Amy Winehouse was published today in the German Jewish newspaper Juedische Allgemeine.  In it I write it pulls you along, even if you did not know her that much, like on a helter skelter without happy end.  In my opinion a must see, because of the fact that she was in ramp light of and the laughing stock of the world.  The movie reveals hard and challenging details, including about the way we consume media.

Contrary to other reports, I feel that her parents were quite ordinary people, evidently at times helpless and clumsy with both Amy Winehouse personal problems, as well as the later intensity of her stardom.

The film suggests rather thaat those who tried to make the most of her career financially, most of all her second manager Raye Cosbert operated potentially reckless with regard to her integrity and well being.

Daniel Zylbersztajn’s 2013

2013 through the selection of some of my articles:

This year I typed over 40 mostly on the ground researched pieces.  Many were transforming and unique written for four media outlets, Taz, Jüdische Allgemeine, Open Democracy and Die Zeit.  On three occasions I published only on my blog.

I hope I continue to write challenging and original pieces in the next year.  I have some already forthcoming to do with urban culture, domestic violence, sustainability and on Jewish issues.  Perhaps I will also write again more in English, as I have done in the past.

To my all my readers, but especially my loyal ones and interviewees, a great thank you.  I could not do without you!  Special thanks to all the newspapers and editors, you know who are!
