Janis Joplin, with all her contradictions, in ‘Little Girl Blue’
3 December 2015 @ 11:15 am

There's more than a little of Janis Joplin in the character Bette Midler played in 1979's "The Rose," but Hollywood has never managed to make a feature about the blues-rock singer. Amy Berg's "Janis: Little Girl Blue" suggests one reason: Although Joplin's brief life was eventful, its contradictions would stymie a tidy biopic.

Janis: Little Girl Blue: EW review
3 December 2015 @ 11:11 am

Death is excellent at turning artists into icons, but it tends to calcify them, too—recasting messy, complicated humans as the familiar demigods of dorm-room posters and greatest-hits collections.

Review: In 'Janis: Little Girl Blue,' Exploring Joplin's Demons
30 November 2015 @ 8:25 am

In Amy Berg's documentary "Janis: Little Girl Blue," the sound that erupts from Janis Joplin singing the '60s R&B classic "Cry Baby" comes as close as I've heard to a grown-up singer capturing a baby's primal squall. Heard today, this raw, insistent scream, from Joplin's posthumously released 1971 album, "Pearl," is as disturbing and powerful as ever.
