Janis: Little Girl Blue Diretto da Amy Berg
The emotion behind the music will never die. Amy Berg is a bold director to recognise and channel intangible feelings of longing in this apt, tragic and inspiring documentary.

Here [Berg] largely conforms to biopic convention – despite citing Darren Aronofsky’s 2000 film Requiem for a Dream as a (not readily detectable) visual influence. Little Girl Blue sticks to a familiar formula of archive footage, photographs and documents, with reminiscences from Joplin’s family, friends and fellow musicians. There’s even a three-act structure: Janis growing up, Janis in a bad, Janis goes solo. It’s in the fact act that image becomes a keynote.

Though sluggish in the middle section, the film is nonetheless effective in illustrating how a star as incendiary as Joplin could dim and ultimately die in the spotlight; one acute example is a newspaper clipping from her personal collection that describes her songs as “raw and desperate mating calls”—a backhanded compliment, like so many directed toward her music and physical appearance, that still smarts.
