Imperfect and messy, she was a white girl who sang the blues, a wily independent figure who predated equal rights, an artist brave enough to lay herself bare in song then pay the ultimate price for that fearlessness. As the documentary shows, Joplin fought relentlessly to be herself — a rowdy and adventurous woman who literally belted out her rage, sorrow and happiness on a world stage while simultaneously asking the world to do what her classmates, parents and neighbors never could: love her for who she was. For a loud-mouthed, opinionated girl with unpolished looks and unbridled sexuality, it was a big ask, especially in the posts America. Cat Power narrates the letters, which have never before been released to the public. Familiar footage of Joplin performing at Monterey and Woodstock feels fresh given all the personal context the film provides leading to those breakthrough moments in her career. The reaction of audiences, who were floored and almost blindsided by the sheer passion of Joplin, illustrates what a true anomaly she was in a rock world populated almost entirely of men. Unpolished even in terms of the era, Joplin broke ground for every female rock and pop performer in her wake and did it in the course of an absurdly short career. But this was before the age of pop celebrity media training and politically correct responses. She numbed that pain with short-lived relationships, a drinking habit formed in high school and, later, drugs that were the lifeblood of s San Francisco. Her growing heroin habit is documented in the film via first-hand accounts of those closest to Joplin her bandmates from Big Brother and the Holding Company, her friend Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead , and their stories of her demise are wrenching.
I am not quite a spouse of a doctor. I learned that you have to weigh thes things out--is it someone you care enough about to wait for. I have been that crazy lady with four kids alone at everything, school events, home events, church events. Follow your heart and live life with no regrets. I knew I was going to be alone much of the time and for the most part I can handle it. I grew away from mine as my husband then-boyfriend slowly grew closer to his Mormon faith. I have been married for 16 years to a cardiothoracic surgeon. I have learned this painfully with my child growing up in the LDS community.
I love him more than anyone else I've been with - but it takes a strong, patient woman willing to sacrifice a lot, to date a doctor. And some will do that. I suppose it depends on your personality.
