The Last Five Years is a follow up to a previous doc, Five Years, produced in 2013 for BBC Two. It includes interviews with collaborators and unseen archival footage, and was met with a warm critical reception after its UK debut last month. One Telegraph review compared it to a vigil just after his death in Brixton, calling it "both a stunned wake and a glorious celebration." No word on when it'll make its HBO debut, but you can watch a trailer below for now.
