I really wasn't sure if I should put this in OT or Misc. but since it's about Jimi I thought that it would get a good response. Sorry if this is the wrong forum though mods. I actually saw this movie on video about a half a year ago, so I was a little bit reluctant to watch it on VH1, since the cablized version of movies are usually butchered beyond recognition. The only things they seemed to cut was the profanity and nudity, which is of course understandable. So that made me happy. This movie never fails to touch me. Maybe because like so many people here, I'm a huge Hendrix fan. It really gives you insight on what Hendrix was about and what he was like as a person. Of course it has the classic rock biography formula: Brillant musician raises to stardom from nothing, musician creates great music, musician goes into downward spiral as they self-destruct but even as the movie goes into the self-destructive phase, it cuts back to an interview with Jimi where he gives optimistic philosphies. What are your thoughts on this movie? BTW, was the movie company denied the rights to use songs Hendrix wrote because every song he plays in the movie is a cover. I.e. Like a Rolling Stone, All Along the Watchtower, Hey Joe, ect.
