  • Although packed with compelling archive footage, this never quite gets into Joplin's head, heart or soul. Full Review

  • While there are numerous dynamite performance clips, Berg's film is generally more revealing on a personal level than as an appreciation of her music. Full Review

  • Berg’s film is no stylistic innovator itself, but it’s the satisfying feature-length overview that Joplin’s brief, fiercely brilliant career has long merited. Full Review

  • Amy Berg’s deeply sympathetic documentary on Janis Joplin gets so much right, it feels like a major act of cultural excavation. Full Review
