  • Still One of the Greatest Movies!!! Sep 19, 2015
    by Kim E.

    I saw this movie during its' first run in 1979; and, I've been searching for a copy first on VHS, then DVD, now, I finally have a copy (Blu-ray.) Modern technology is wonderful. This movie has always been hailed as the "unofficial, definitive story of Janis Joplin." You don't have to be a Joplin, or Midler fan, or music lover to enjoy this one. Bette Midler as Rose is electrifying throughout. The other performers are equally outstanding, too. The story line will keep you interested. The message of celebrity stardom, excessive drug use, childhood scars and striving for acceptance are just as relevant today. The resulting downfall has been repeated too many times in real life. The music selected (original and covers) performed by Midler is a concert worthy spectacle. You'll enjoy watching this one repeatedly, taking something away each time. A must for "great movie" collectors.
