Whitney: Can I Be Me

Released on 16th June

Whitney Houston, who died in 2012, might seem to have lived too much in the spotlight for fresh revelations. Documentary- maker Nick Broomfield and Austrian music producer Rudi Dolezal identify the complex interplay of causes that might have led to her demise. Her middleincome background in New Jersey was no shield against drugs or exploitation. The early success, the pressures to be less (or more) black, marriage to Bobby Brown and tensions between him and her close friend and personal assistant, Robyn Crawford all play out. It’s frustrating to have only a clip of Whitney’s two older brothers and to see her mother stonewall even Oprah. But the footage is fascinating and the narrative allows its subject dignity.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s June issue: Geoffrey Wheatcroft, Martha Gill and Helen Pidd examine the election chances of the three main political parties. Wheatcroft explores the Tories’ remarkable ability to rise from the ashes and assert dominance, Gill questions why the Lib Dem revival isn’t quite getting off the ground and Pidd examines Labour’s prospects after poor performances in the recent council and mayoral elections. Also in this issue: Christine Ockrent asks if France’s new President Emmanuel Macron can charm the parts of France that didn’t initially vote for him, AC Grayling assesses whether the rise and rise of drone warfare warrants a new ethical code for conflict and Francine Stock explores whether Pixar can continue to captivate modern audiences.
