    A great biography of Janis Joplin who I did not know much history about it. Thankfully there is a lot of Janis recorded and the documentary benefits from her own words with plenty who knew her able to fill in the blanks.

    What this excellent and well-directed documentary does so well is create a profoundly nuanced portrait of a sensitive, three-dimensional woman who only wanted to be happy, and it may not tell everything about her (how could it?) but offers a touching look at her complex character.
