Jimi Hendrix: I want my music to go inside the soul of a person. You know, for me it's colors. I want people to feel the music the same way I see it. It's just colors. That's it. The rest is just painted with a little science fiction here and there.

User Reviews

Didn't meet the expectations
2 June 2015 | by ffvlahosSee all my reviews

The reason why I write this review in a simple language is because the film worths nothing more than that. The film itself is simple. Sure you learn things about the life of Jimi Hendrix, at least for the period of his life it refers to. André Benjamin is doing a good job, for a man who is not purely an actor, but up to a point. Very poor directing in terms of technique and aesthetics. The passion, the vibes and the electricity of the music of that period did not appear in any phase in the film. The approach to social issues was so simplistic that i would prefer if the director/writer avoid it. As an avid fan of Hendrix i saw the film without resentment but with disappointment. For the rest of the possible viewers, don't waste your time i suppose.
