Released within five years of Janis Joplin's tragic death in 1970, this documentary is more celebration than investigation. But, the film provides ample opportunity to read between the lines in various interviews, rehearsals and state performances and to understand something of the sadness that persisted beneath Joplin's brash exuberance.
