Jimi - All is by My Side
Oscar-rewarded John Ridley's film follows Hendrix from the time of being an unknown background guitarist at half full New York clubs to the breakthrough on London's devoted rock scene and embroiders an intimate portrait without blinders. And equally important are the photo model Linda Keith and the troublesome working girl Kathy Etchingham. Two women who got his pale life to switch onto completely new and surprising tracks in the colorful 60's swinging London. Moviezine's Jake Bolin gives the movie four out of five in rating and finds that "as a subtle and talented portrait of one of the greatest icons of rock history, it ever deserves its audience - not just because it's the starting point for John Ridley's career as a film director or for Andrew Benjamin takes his brilliance to a new level.
