A Moment Frozen In Time
31 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is yet,another in the myriad of midnight films I had the pleasure of seeing in the early 1980's,when late shows were still plentiful (and just about the time when late night audiences were beginning to act out of line,thus heralding the beginning of the end of the midnight movie---the video revolution didn't exactly help either). With the exception of the first ten minutes of this film,which is given to footage of protesters refusing to see Woodstock at their local cinema,due to a epidemic of what I referred to as "armchair Marxism" (rich college kids who wanted the world handed to them on a silver platter),the film launches into a non stop Hendrix concert for the rest of the bulk of the film. Some cynics have stated that this was not Jimi's best performance, but you would not know that with the reaction of the crowd that was in attendance that night (plus,the cinema had the good sense to crank the volume up to concert level,as there wasn't another film in progress). This "rockumentary" (or rock doc,as they're calling them these days)is well worth seeking out for Hendrix fans (and fans of period music,as well)
