Andre 3000 is Jimi Hendrix in the first clip from All is By My Side

03.06.2014

I wondered when that Jimi Hendrix biopic, ALL IS BY MY SIDE was going to see the light of day. Finally we get a clip of the biopic that features Andre Benjamin (AKA Andre 3000 from Outkast) and Imogen Poots.

They must have decided to put the promotion into gear after writer-director John Ridley won “Best Adapted Screenplay” for 12 YEARS A SLAVE. Ridley, who is a veteran of the small screen, serves in the same capacity on this Hendrix biopic, which hasn’t had much support in the way of marketing. Hell, I haven’t even heard anyone talking about it. One reason might be because none of Jimi’s music was lent to the film. A thing like that is kind of a big deal when it comes to the biopic of a musician, right?

Regardless, I am still intrigued to see Benjamin’s portrayal. The clip shows that he seems to have Jimi down, at least from what I can see after about 1 minute and a half. Not release date yet. The first screening will be held at SXSW this year.

Synopsis:

A drama based on Jimi Hendrix's pre-fame years.

... has the wold gone fucking mad? Awful. Awful!

And 'he seems to have Jimi down.' Sigh. Another well-thought out, award-winning piece of conjecture, Niki...

How else is he going to keep his callouses, the dexterity and proficiency of his guitar skills while in the Army? It's just because he had to play SOMETHING!
