Rated PG · 97 minutes · 2009

This film is billed as a “documentary on the electric guitar,” which it’s not. It’s actually a documentary about three electric guitarists: Jack White, The Edge and Jimmy Page. It’s strangely entertaining; I even brought a friend who had no interest in electric guitar, and she loved it. The film mostly explores the musical development of its three subjects. White’s love of old blues and punk moved him to make the heaviest electric blues he could. Edge’s hatred for metal and pop drove him toward the sparse and tight U2 sound. And Page just loved everything, and he steals the show with his infectious smile and voracious appetite for music. In the end, you’ll find White a bit affected, and Edge somewhat uptight, but you’ll just want to bask in Page’s presence. He’s the cool rock grandfather you wish you had.

Charleston City Paper Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack White team up in It Might Get Loud When Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page talks excitedly about "the whole aroma of it!," you might think of wine, women, or weed. But the senior statesman of strum is, in fact, speaking of something far more precious: his ax. Page is part of a troika of guitarists, including U2's The Edge and The White Stripes' Jack White, who spend the better part of the documentary It Might Get Loud talking about how much they love their guitars. And, boy, do they. by Felicia Feaster 10/14/2009
