It Might Get Loud (2009)

Director: Davis Guggenheim. Cast: Jimmy Page, The Edge, Jack White. 98 min. Rated PG. Documentary.

I have no knowledge of the electric guitar, and am vaguely familiar with the three master guitarists featured here. But that didn't hinder me one bit from enjoying this documentary on the instrument. Watching Led Zepplin's Jimmy Page describe with his hands how beautiful the "Rumble" (the pivot of Pulp Fiction's soundtrack) is, or U2's "The Edge" show how to create world around four simple notes, or Jack White's fingers bleed as he plays nonstop for 15 minutes, are moments that create great respect for these artists. Watching the three play together at the end is a music-lover's dream.
