Re: movies about artists

There is a movie called Hendrix.  Basically it was like walk the line only they had little interviews with Wood Harris as Jimi Hendrix.  It was pretty good though I know some people thought it was horrible.

Re: movies about artists

I just saw the Buddy Holly Story and it was ok. Great Balls of Fire is a good movie about Jerry Lee Lewis. My favorite was Walk The Line though. Then theres Some Kind Of Monster which is about Metallica in a documentary of the making of the album that was pretty good if you like Metallica.I can't think of any more i've seen.

How about "Hard Days Night" and "Help" by the Beatles. Very campy but very good.
