Jane's Journey Reviews

Positivity has its limits in "Jane's Journey," a portrait of primatologist Jane Goodall that's long on adulation and short on spark.

An awkward and generally unfocused mash-up of mixed perspectives and mission statements.

Now in her 70s, Goodall is still shy, with as much indefatigible energy as ever.

You may have the feeling of being stuck at a nice old lady's house while she narrates a meandering slide show in slow, storybook tones.

Skimps on intellectual substance but skirts by on the lightly likable charm of its subject, who appears throughout.

An engrossing portrait of the public and private lives of Jane Goodall; one of the Best Documentaries of 2011.

Any analysis of her philanthropy or character is traded for blind idol worship...

Spectacularly photographed and journalistically lame...

Slant Magazine

Leads us through Jane Goodall's greatest hits with adulating talking heads and putatively inspiring, over-exposed eco-scapes.
