Jimmy Hendrix and that 70's feel
20 January 2005 | by hotwaterpunk25See all my reviews

The number one reason that I like this film is because Hendrix was awesome. The music is mind blowing, which is a given because it is Hendrix. But in my favorite part of the film Jimmy does not even have a guitar in his hand. It's before the show even starts. In my opinion it is when he is on the way to the show. It is there when you get to see maybe what Jimmy was like. He seems so calm and collective. He seems so quite. After the limo pulls up to the venue, he gets out and walks up to the door. It's this point that I watch over and over again. The way he walks up to the door. It's almost like he knows, yep, I am a bad mouth. He knows it, but he wouldn't shout it out. He will just keep it in his head, keep it to himself.

After I get past this part, the rest of the film is awesome as well. It is pretty much like the rest of the live Hendrix material you will see. Watching him perform is amazing. He was so violent with his guitar, but yet he had so much control. Hendrix was an amazing guitar player there is no doubt about that.
