The 20 best music documentaries ranked!
We rate the best films on the music scene down the decades, from Bob Dylan to Blur, Anvil to Amy Winehouse
20. Big Fun in the Big Town (1986)
Charming Belgian TV presenter Marcel Vanthilt tries to get to grips with the New York rap scene. Interviewees include LL Cool J and Schoolly D, but this featurette is as alert to social nuances as musical ones.
19. Starshaped (1993)
This catches Blur on the brink of the Britpop explosion, looking keen but confused, and often the worse for wear. Car-crash highlights include Damon Albarn falling off a speaker and John Peel expressing amusing indifference to their music.
18. Oil City Confidential (2009)
Canvey Island pub-rock combo Dr Feelgood get the movie treatment from The Great RocknRoll Swindle director Julien Temple.
17. Amy (2015)
Asif Kapadias Oscar-winning film about Amy Winehouse expertly stitches together everything from home movies brimming with hope to end-of-the-line concert appearances when the jig was truly up.
16. 20 Feet from Stardom (2013)
