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.

A recipe for triumph then tragedy, here given its punchy and desperately poignant due.

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

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.

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