Sound and Vision

"A newly unvaulted treasure trove of audio interviews about Billie Holiday that were conducted in the 1970s forms the basis of a transfixing documentary about the master jazz singer. (...) There's a creditable emphasis on gift, not just the grubbiness. (...) Billie is a movie that almost cries." - Variety
