Plot: Probably the rock mixed with blues virtuoso and distortions of fact was not made ​​for everyone’s ears, but he has become an icon of rock on him even though he had eyes heavy with audiences and critics: whatever one may say or think of Jimi Hendrix nobody, and I mean nobody can doubt the charisma and magnetism that emanated during her performances on stage. I immediately start by saying that in my opinion, what is lacking in this mainly Jimi – All is by my side is just that, the protagonist can not transmitting anything, has given us a portrait of a boy rather insecure psychopath and his brain burned by hippie utopia in the world: it was then that the real Jimi Hendrix ?

The life of the historical guitarist of Seattle in reality we know very little, the choice of John Ridley to tell the year in which Jimi is transformed from a session musician from a local music legend was brave enough, but perhaps even the only possible, or risk getting lost in the dark zone that marked the brief but intense career of formidable guitarist. Ridley focuses on that 1966 saw the young Jimi as a secondary protagonist of Swinging London when he played as a shoulder Curtis Knight . The encounter with two female personalities distinct and separate but equally important will be used to Jimi to become aware of their own means: first, Linda Keith, one who hangs the world of rock at 360 ° (it was the woman by Keith Richards , guitarist of historic Stones ), from groupie has turned into a sort of manager, but he’ll be a lot more, a sister, a counselor, a muse.


Then there’s Kathy XXX, which represents the classic love story of every damn legendary rockstar, though version of Ridley seemed to me a bit ‘too romanticized. The journey recounted in Jimi: All by my side will eventually take us to the final consecration of Hendrix , one of the famous Festival of Monterey , that of the guitar on fire passed into history. Had it been a movie about the Beatles or any of their components would have commented on the vision of a more informed since I can brag to know the subject well, for Hendrix is a different matter, it is certainly an icon, but I can not go beyond the knowledge of the musical side, I have not sufficient knowledge about the person as well as I do not have the character, and yet, in spite of my ignorance, I can not judge this film positively, for a variety of reasons, which I’ll summarize in brief.
