The electric life of Jimi Hendrix is yet to occupy any significant movie screen time, but All Is By My Side is at the ready to change all that.
Andre 3000 takes the lead as the virtuoso guitar player and exuberant performer, and delivers 'The Jimi Hendrix Experience' of Hendrix's pre-fame days in London.
12 Years A Slave screenwriter John Ridley had a steep hill to climb with [Jimi: All Is by My Side](movie:396223) thanks to disapproval from the Hendrix estate. Despite the musical axis this entire movie rotates around, Ridley did not have any access to any of Hendrix's songs.
Although there were obvious setbacks, All Is By My Side seems like it will be a wild romp through Rock history, and I was pleasantly impressed by Andre 3000's acting ability.
