If you're going to do a music biography, take a page from John Ridley's All Is By My Side. While far from perfect, it's an intelligent examination of Jimi Hendrix' life -- specifically, the year he lived in London before he returned to America as a conquering hero. And I quite like Andre Benjamin in the role. (I suddenly don't feel so bad that we never get Outkast albums anymore.) I reviewed All Is By My Side for Screen International.
