    I saw it at Toronto. I thought he was better in ALL IS BY MY SIDE than Matthew McChaunahey was in Dallas Buyers Club.

    He's got it down to a tee.. Voice, mannerism and all.

  • real nigga

    idk how i feel about this... he's close with the voice, but i can tell he's trying... and just happens to be darker than jimi, which seems kinda like a purposeful mistake/generalization of black people... and also, jimi's fam doesn't support this, and none of his actual music will be in the film. only covers. honestly jimi hendrix' music is the reason i really started loving music, and this kinda seems sloppily done. im just bein honest
