'Janis: Little Girl Blue': Inside the New Joplin Doc

17 November 2015 9:12 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This fall marks the 45th anniversary of Janis Joplin's death from an overdose in a Hollywood hotel room. Since then, she's been the subject of books, reissues, a boxed set, an off-Broadway show, and a still-in-development biopic, possibly starring Amy Adams. Everyone from Kim Gordon to Pink has given Joplin props for paving the way as a woman in a male-dominated rock climate, and the singer's raw delivery continues to resonate. "Even when I was 10 or 12 years old and first heard her sing," recalls Chan Marshall, a.k.a. »

Review: Station To Station, In A Realm Of Its Own

20 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

It consists of countless bands, playing on and off a polychromatic train as it passes through innumerable cities. But Station To Station is no rockumentary. That it often features brilliant bands playing live on a train will perhaps evoke, for some, the choo choo cha boogie joy of 2006's Festival Express, which documented 60s musical greats traveling by train on a tour across Canada. Aside from the superficial connection -- both docs feature musicians on trains -- what's far more relevant is this: What made Festival Express such a marvel wasn't necessarily the shows along the way, but the spontaneous creative energies that occurred in between them. While the 60s were fraught with 'happenings', on a smaller scale, these intimate scenes were special because, without prior planning, they...

Chan Marshall, known by her stage name Cat Power, will supply the voice narration for the upcoming Janis Joplin documentary “Janis” from director Amy Berg.

The documentary will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, where it was selected Wednesday to screen out of competition.

The film will include Marshall reading Jolpin’s own letters to her family and lovers, while the soundtrack will have her hits “Cry Baby,” “Summertime” and “Piece of My Heart.”

“After attempting to get this film off the ground for seven years, I am ecstatic that the film is finally ready to be seen,” Berg said. “This has been a labor of love, and I cannot wait to share Janis’ unique, intimate story with the world. Chan Marshall (Cat Power) has delivered a beautiful, introspective voice of Janis’ by reading her letters.”

Footage includes Joplin performing at Monterey Pop in 1967, Woodstock in 1969 and »
