A brilliant film essay: rejecting the conventios of biopic, Rappaport offers personal, illuminating thoughts about the troubled career and ultimately tragic life of Jean Seberg.

Audience Reviews for From the Journals of Jean Seberg

Part biopic, part documentary, part film studies essay; this film is a clever examination of the history of beautiful women in Hollywood cinema

Wonderfully crafted art/analytical documentary, although lacking the traditional and trusted documentary presentation. Simultaneously distant and intimate with it's subject. I think that for film lovers this a unique attempt to get to know an enigmatic figures life through her work
