A A L I Y A H : The Inside Look | Documentary By Amorphous (Full Video)


The wait is finely over #TeamAaliyah! As promised Amorphous has released his full Aaliyah documentary 'Aaliyah: The Inside Look' (it was originally meant to be released on the 25th, but due to 8 hours of exporting the 2 hour video, we can forgive him for that! 😉). Besides, I prefer people to take their time when it comes to Babygirl, as apposed to rushing. Aaliyah herself was known for being a perfectionist, thus, we should similarly take the same approach for whatever we do concerning our beloved angel 🙏💚

Having just finished watching the documentary (Pre-warning – make sure y'all keep those tissues ready for all those emotional parts! 😢) it has just confirmed to me what I felt from watching the trailers alone. By far, one of the best visual documentaries I have seen for years! Everything was done so tastefully, where you feel captivated and drawn from the very beginning. The video production, editing, sound editing, music choice, narration, facts etc... (the list 'goes on and on and on...') were all spot on and flowed beautifully in a professional manner. I know that this video was not made for any monetary gain, but if I were ever to see a DVD copy of this, I would hands down buy it. I've seen countless documentaries in the past where some facts have not been told correctly, or lack certain parts of Aaliyah's early life, career and the friends who accompanied her.

Made by a fan, for the fans, you can tell that a lot of hard work, passion and dedication has been taken in throughly to produce such a heartfelt, emotional film of a woman who touched all boys, girls, men and women. Be it a 'Young Nation' fan or an older generation fan, we can learn a lot about Aaliyah's life just by watching this. I know for one that I definitely learnt some new things I did not know before (I especially loved the music chart receipts from the UK, which if you don't know by now is where I am from 😎). It just generally made me feel so proud to be a fan of hers, and knowing how much love Aaliyah had for her fans, so that was really insightful and refreshing to know. 

Personally speaking, I'm quite a strong person so I knew I would get teary eyed watching this particular documentary. Never in my life did I imagine the 11 year old child in me to be bawling out my eyes, feeling that same pain I felt that very same day on hearing the news of her passing. It really touched my heart in ways I never thought imaginable. It was like some of my grieving process was still repressed from all those years ago, taking a trip down memory lane, and re-living all those moments I remember watching live on TV as a young kid (both the good and bad). 

All in all this is a MUST watch for ALL fans and for future generations to come. No matter how hard people try to cover, re-invent or change history, the truth shall always prevail and set Aaliyah, Diane, Michael and Rashad Haughton free. Aaliyah may not be able to speak for herself, but we as fans are her voice, alongside her family (minus Barry Hankerson of course, who I constantly cursed at every time he was shown throughout the film! LOL 😂)

Jimir, I want to personally thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into making this documented video of Aaliyah's life. You've put your whole heart, soul, sweat, blood and tears into making something that was truly worth the wait. I wish you nothing but success in your future endeavours and hope that other professionals can take head and follow suit on how to create something through the right means, with the utmost respect towards Aaliyah's legacy. ðŸ™ðŸ’š
