Covering a year in Jimi Hendrix’s life from 1966-67 as an unknown backup guitarist playing New York’s Cheetah Club to making his mark in London’s music scene up until his Monterey Pop triumph, the film presents an intimate portrait of the sensitive young musician on the verge of becoming a rock legend.

"With Jimi: All Is By My Side, writer-director John Ridley tries to do for the rock biopic what Jimi Hendrix did for rock 'n' roll itself in the 1960s — explode it, redefine it, and help it find its best self."
- Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine (Vulture)
"An evocative, probing, enlightening, and impressionistic look at the lesser-known period of Hendrix’s life: the pivotal time from 1966-67 during which the musician discovered his style and voice."
- Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"Liberated from playing the hits, Benjamin eloquently captures Hendrix’s emerging style without having to succumb to jukebox-musical opportunism."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"That's something else Ridley and his actors do: make you appreciate what a life it was - impossibly short, impossibly brilliant."
- Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"What moviegoers do get is a film both thoughtful and convincing, sympathetic but not flattering to a man who had just three years after this period's end to make himself immortal."
- John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
