Critic Reviews for American Masters: Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin'

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

[It] does an admirable job covering all the bases, and contains just enough new interviews and unseen footage to make it worth a look for the already experienced, though a bolder approach might have attracted more love.

What he was really like remains in large part a mystery. In that respect, Hear My Train A Comin' doesn't try to play a gumshoe. Its strengths are Hendrix in action, his guitar on fire whether he set a match to it or not.

This new American Masters documentary on Jimi Hendrix confirms much of what we already knew well and gives some tantalizing hints of what we still hardly know at all.

If the new American Masters documentary on Jimi Hendrix doesn't seem to do full justice to the late guitar hero, it's only because no film could ever capture what it was like to hear Hendrix live.

Incredible footage, Paul McCartney and crisply told. But way too polite.

While worthy, this is hardly an intimate portrait. And that opacity would have suited its subject just fine. He preferred to keep people, by and large, at a comfortable hearing distance. And Jimi always had the amplifiers cranked to 11.
