A Long Journey

A Long Journey

"A Long Journey" tells the story of three siblings who reach adolescence in the late 1960's. The documentary's storyline follows the youngest brother's travels around the world. Worried that he would enter the struggle for freedom against the Brazilian dictatorship, his family sent Heitor to London. There however, he dives head on into the "Swinging London" and, just like the European and American youth of the time period, he experiments with drugs and the mystic allure of India. In the nine years he has traveled around the world, from 1969 to 1978, he has regularly written to his family. The documentary features interviews with Heitor today, his letters and off-screen comments of Heitor's sister, Lúcia Murat, the director of the movie.

Erin C (ru) wrote: Sally Field was amazing in this. DID is such an interesting illness, and it was very entertaining to watch Field play all of the characters so well. Though it was fairly long (a little over 3 hours), I didn't find myself bored or wanting it to end at any point.

Brian P (br) wrote: Don't watch if you're a John Cusack fan because he's barely in the flick. But it has the best portrayal of the bombing of Dresden in World War II I've ever seen. Other than that it is a tragic love story of sorts. The movie stars Jason Scott Lee who was also working Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story at the same time.

We delved into the psyche of the troubled frontman of Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, in "Montage of Heck." "Amy" gave us a closer look into the downfall of modern soul singer Amy Winehouse, and now Amy Berg's "Janis: Little Girl Blue," a fastidiously researched account of the life of Janis Joplin, acts as a closer for a year in which misunderstood musical talents were finally given a chance to be seen not through a romanticized cloud of smoke but as humans, as tortured souls whose demons were kept locked away from an adoring public for far too long. Janis Joplin is the most fascinating of the aforementioned grouping, as she, curiously, is not necessarily the woman most would think of her as. Most would pin her as a free spirit raised by hippies, a drug abuser that searched for a high not to escape the pains of the everyday but to enhance a thoughtful outlook on life. Not so - the mystique that obsessively swirls around her tunes and image can, after all, deter human dimension. Directed by Amy Berg, "Janis: Little Girl Blue" takes its titular figure off the rock 'n' roll pedestal she currently resides on. Friends and family interviewed speak of her as a hero they admire just as much as the public does - but the component that justifies their accounts is the way they talk about her: deeply in awe but appearing as people who always assumed that Joplin, despite her rough lifestyle, would live forever because of a rough exterior. Noticeable regret swirls in their eyes; a light melancholy accentuates their recounting of past events. As we're given a tour of Joplin's life through archival footage and intimate letters read by Chan Marshall (also known as Cat Power), we can feel their sorrows in the palm of our hand. The documentary allows for us to feel as though we really knew her, and that makes her tragedy affect us in ways never felt. Before, we just knew her voice and her persona; "Janis: Little Girl Blue" praises her talents but never lets us forget that considerable vocal power does not equal uncomplicated happiness. We're reminded of this during one such moment when presented footage shows Joplin (at the height of her career) attending her high school reunion, being interviewed by a member of the press. With all her fame and fortune, we'd expect her to easily laugh at the kids who used to bully her on a regular basis. So we want to break down as the interviewer awakens memories of her days as a tormented wallflower, her musical recognition making no difference in the pain that we hear in her responses. She was like one of us, just better able to express herself through an impassioned song. "Janis: Little Girl Blue" has not received the same critical appreciation that "Amy" and "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck" did following their releases - maybe that's because our culture has so widely accepted Joplin as a legend of the past that they'd prefer she stay that way. But, in truth, it's as good as the former, better than the last. The unceremonious and jarring way her death is represented (a wise choice by Berg) stirs our souls long after the film is over. Even forty-five years later, it's hard to accept that Janis Joplin is no longer with us.
