It Might Get Loud

So over the weekend it was unbearably hot and humid so we decided to duck into the Chelsea Sunshine Cinema and press our luck by just seeing whatever was playing, and boy did it work out. It Might Get Loud posters are scattered throughout the city and I was definitely interested in seeing the doc. It features Jack White, The Edge, and Jimmy Page and their eclectic guitar styles and philosophies. This is a great film, well-crafted, well-edited, and researched. From the opening scene of Mr. White hammering together a homemade instrument to the last scene of the three heros playing "The Weight" (take a load of Annie ) and the three figuring out what parts they would play/sing I thoroughly enjoyed it. It had some great animation sequences that helped further the story along and were never distracting or out of place. The archival footage of a young "James Page" and old photos of Edge, and early photos of Jack were so much fun and again worked together beautifully to tell a story. Three very different personalities, different lifestyles, from three different countries, all with a love of their music. A must see.
