Whitney: Can I Be Me, film review - How this brilliant star lived, loved and lost 

Evening Standard logo
In Nick Broomfield's new documentary Whitney Houston is asked how she wants to be remembered. The gorgeous, ridiculously successful singer/model/actress flashes her big, slick smile, murmurs a few sweet nothings, then says, "I don't want to go down for being a hag." In the last years of her life, Houston often looked as wild as a witch. What made her fairytale life implode? Broomfield's thesis is that Houston could, and should, have had a happy ending with Robyn Crawford, the schoolfriend who morphed into her right-hand woman and was almost certainly her long-term lover. Instead, Houston bought into the idea that every princess needs a prince. In this case, rapper Bobby Brown who, as footage from Houston's 1999 world tour shows, was an über prat. When Broomfield loves his subjects (Biggie Smalls' mum, Voletta Wallace; serial killer, Aileen Wuornos) he creates magic. You can tell he's smitten with Crawford. In sequences shot by showbiz veteran Rudi Dolezal (who gets a co-directing credit) Crawford flirts with Houston (in a cheekily intimate sort of way) and visibly recoils when Brown approaches. It's a shame Broomfield couldn't get an interview with this smart cookie. Still, you feel like you know her. Read more Director happy to make Whitney Houston film 'without family approval' In 2014, Broomfield made Tales of the Grim Sleeper, a sublime documentary about a series of gruesome crimes that were ignored by the LA police because the victims were black, crack-addicted, prostitutes. An extra layer of horror (according to Broomfield) was that the killer's black, church-going wife knew about the murders but deliberately turned a blind eye. Can I Be Me, similarly, is fascinated by the way racism and religion render certain individuals beyond the pale. Houston's dishevelled older brothers (raised in one of the roughest parts of Newark) explain how they began using heroin before they were even teens. Meanwhile, their mother Cissy (who has since distanced herself from the film) comes across as a controlling zealot. You get the sense of a woman battling so hard to impress white America that her moral compass has gone haywire. Like Asif Kapadia's Amy, Can I Be Me is not an "official" portrait. Again, like Amy, it contains great songs. Houston, singing an R&B song to Jesus, lets go of the glitz and makes the heavens explode. Obviously, Kevin Macdonald's upcoming Houston documentary (endorsed by Cissy), will offer a more complete picture. But my guess is that Broomfield's downbeat chronicle, obsessed with love, loss and betrayal, will be the one which endures. Cert 15, 105 mins... read more

Grenfell Tower fire: David Lammy demands arrests over 'corporate manslaughter' 

Evening Standard logo
An MP whose friend is missing after the Grenfell Tower fire has demanded arrests over what he described as "corporate manslaughter". David Lammy said the blaze that killed at least 17 people and seriously injured dozens more was "a crime of the most horrendous kind". Artist Kadija Saye, a friend who the Labour MP for Tottenham said "had become a part of my family", was not been seen since Wednesday morning's inferno on the Ladbroke West estate in Notting Hill. Mr Lammy, writing in the Guardian, said: "Don't let them tell you it's a tragedy. It's not a tragedy, it's a monstrous crime. Corporate manslaughter. They were warned by the residents that there was an obvious risk of catastrophe.

Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered a judge-led public inquiry into the disaster, which came after residents had repeatedly raised concerns about fire risk at the tower block.... read more

'Dangerous beyond description' prisoners captured after manhunt 

Evening Standard logo
Two US prisoners said to be "dangerous beyond description" after shooting dead two prison guards have been captured in Tennessee following a major manhunt. Donnie Rowe, 43, and Ricky Dubose, 24, were arrested after they were held at gunpoint by a rural homeowner in Christiana whose vehicle they were trying to steal. It ended a multiple state manhunt that began early on Tuesday in Georgia after the inmates killed Sergeant Christopher Monica and Sergeant Curtis Billue, jumped out of prison bus, carjacked a passing vehicle and made their getaway. Tennessee Bureau of Investigation director Mark Gwyn said: "True bravery is what's caused us to stand before you tonight to talk about a successful capture instead of a tragic incident." Earlier in the day, police in nearby Shelbyville had responded to a call about a home invasion, where a couple had been held captive. The suspects fled in the couple's vehicle and fired on sheriff's deputies chasing them on Interstate 24 about 50 miles southeast of Nashville. Rowe and Dubose crashed the car and ran into the woods. They came across a home where they tried to steal a car, but the homeowner held the pair at gunpoint while a neighbour called police. Georgia Department of Corrections Commissioner Greg Dozier said: "They will be brought to justice swiftly for their heinous crime against our officers." Georgia Governor Nathan Deal applauded the "tireless efforts" of law enforcement but also turned his thoughts to the families of the two officers, saying their pain remains. "We will do everything in our power to support their loved ones, and we will not forget their sacrifice and service," Mr Deal said. The two inmates overpowered and disarmed the guards as 33 inmates were being driven between prisons, authorities have said. Both escapees were serving sentences for armed robbery and other crimes.... read more
