For a movie about rock 'n roll royalty, there hasn't been much noise about the Jimi Hendrix biopic "All Is By My Side." Not only does the movie feature Andre 3000 (aka Andre Benjamin) playing the legendary axeman, it was written by Oscar-winning "12 Years A Slave" scribe John Ridley, who directs as well (it's his sophomore feature effort; his first is the little-seen 1997 film "Cold Around The Heart"). And yet, despite all that and a TIFF premiere last fall, we haven't heard much about it. But perhaps a showing at SXSW will change that.

All Is By My Side Andre 3000

For a movie about rock 'n roll royalty, there hasn't been much noise about the Jimi Hendrix biopic "All Is By My Side." Not only does the movie feature Andre 3000 (aka Andre Benjamin) playing the legendary axeman, it was written by Oscar-winning "12 Years A Slave" scribe John Ridley, who directs as well (it's his sophomore feature effort; his first is the little-seen 1997 film "Cold Around The Heart"). And yet, despite all that and a TIFF premiere last fall, we haven't heard much about it. But perhaps a showing at SXSW will change that.

A new clip from the movie has landed online, giving folks a first taste of Andre 3000 as Hendrix, in this scene opposite Imogen Poots, playing model and muse Linda Keith, onetime girlfriend of Keith Richards, who inspired songs from both men. The movie's existence doesn't make the Hendrix estate happy, but it steers clear of legal trouble by focusing on the musician's breakthrough period from 1966 to 1967, before he recorded Are You Experienced?

The question is whether audiences will be down with a Hendrix movie that doesn't feature his iconic music. We'll see but until then, watch below. [Flicks And Bits]
