Critic Reviews for Janis: Little Girl Blue
Until Janis Joplin came along. Her scratchy, whiskey-bruised voice arrested a generation and, however accidentally, carved a place for those without a Y chromosome. Little Girl Blue tracks her rock takeover to the very end, up to her tragic death.
Janis: Little Girl Blue vividly and often poignantly revisits her short life -- and hard and fast times.
Documentary filmmaker Amy Berg (West of Memphis, Prophet's Prey) has made an elegant, affectionate and, in many ways, remarkably cheerful film about Janis Joplin.
Fine, judicious, generous portrait of a lady who sang the blues.
Audience Reviews for Janis: Little Girl Blue
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.
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.
