Her response to her mother's 'playful' criticism outside in street/park re: telling family secrets -- was very telling in terms of whatever the father did, the mother appears to be more disturbed and even sicker. And SBH's response wasn't puzzling--she would do anything for her mother's 'love' even if it was pretty twisted...as the song 'Carry Me' more than implies.
I've seen interviews over the years, she appears to have overcome a lot and continues to use her intelligence, talent, and passions to use in positive ways, and that shows a lot of strength.
There is a nice 30 minute behind the scenes "commentary track", which is actually more like a featurette, where a cameraman is filming Sophie and director Gigi Gaston as they talk about various scenes of the documentary.
There are also 3 of Sophie's videos on this DVD, from her most recent album, Timbre.
I'm not sure how interesting this DVD would be for non-Sophie fans or people who have never heard her music before. For these people, I would only recommend this DVD as a rental.
For the true Sophie fans, this DVD provides a candid insight into the unique personality of Sophie B. Hawkins that you'll never see anywhere else.
Despite this seemingly unfavorable review, I did enjoy it. But that's only because I'm a hardcore Sophie fan, and I also love all the scenes with cute doggies & stuff. But I doubt that this film will have a broad appeal. I would love to see an unauthorized director's cut version that shows all the scenes that were deleted & bleeped/fuzzed out. No holds barred. That would be more Sophie's style.
