Like so many women in pursuit of their studies, Goodall had to tolerate being studied herself.
It's most evocative as a memorable portrait of a woman, both in youth and late life, who always knew what she wanted - and who, in doing so, helped make the world a better place.
A portrait of the primatologist as a young woman.
Perhaps we've all been spoilt by 'Blue Planet', but that original footage doesn't feel strong enough stretched out over 90 minutes.
Jane is Brett Morgen's gorgeous, convincing new documentary on Jane Goodall, the one-time ape watcher and current UN messenger of peace.
Goodall has left her mark on the world and this documentary ably and engagingly celebrates that legacy.
Smartly told and beautifully composed.
[Hers] is a life that inspires generations-one of perseverance, intelligence, and empathy against all odds.
A moving but flawed piece of documentary that could stand to fill in a few blanks, Jane is bolstered by a powerful score, sharp editing and an abundance of fascinating archive footage.
Those who see Jane will no doubt walk away with newfound respect and admiration for her unassuming feminism and her contribution to the world.
An enthralling watch from start to finish.
Yet it didn't provide the big humbling rush of nature worship it promised, not least because Philip Glass's pushy score left no space for quiet contemplation.
