Benjamin was also the third man in the relatively bland 2008 comedy "Semi-Pro." Will Farrell and Woody Harrelson got better play, but not better dialogue.
In "All Is By My Side," though, Benjamin is center stage and unforgettable.
I can't predict how the many who worship Hendrix will ultimately judge Benjamin's rendition. I only know I could have watched him do his thing forever. It truly was like watching a relationship between man and guitar unfold, expand and overwhelm.
The actor had probably clocked a million hours on guitar before he took this role. But not left-handed, which Hendrix was. So apparently Benjamin spent nearly three months, 24/7, learning how that would feel --- how that would play.
Anytime that guitar was in Benjamin's hands, it played pretty darned well.
